Dehydration?Meds?: Drugs that dehydrate can cause this, not drinking enough h2o can, and medications which cause dry mouth (and their are many), all encourage the growth of bacteria in your mouth which can makes things "not right." also, many patients on antibiotics have a metallic or earthy feel in the mouth, and things taste bad. However, this should last until you finish the course. A zinc defiency does this.
