A 48-year-old member asked:

How long does the bad taste in my mouth continue after starting vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)? is there a way to get rid of it quickly?

Lemon Juice: The bad or bitter taste associated with many medications, particularly some antibiotics, is because they are on the basic side of the acid-base spectrum. Taking a teaspoon of lemon juice or a similarly acidic juice will usually relieve your problem.
