Common: Taste changes are listed as a common reaction to acetazolamide. Don't stop your medicines without checkin with your doctor for an alternative. (diamox brand has been discontinued in the us).

The Most Common:: Carbonated drinks taste awful for many on Diamox (acetazolamide) which can be a surprise if you are a dedicated soda pop fan; beer becomes dreadful as well. Foods may also become either bitter or oddly bland though this side effect sometimes fades with time. Others might note a metallic taste in their mouth. A few complain of nausea and loss of appetite.
