Among what you have listed fish oil and turmeric may cause an after taste rather than vitamins, medical conditions, commonly thrush can cause taste alterations as well. Talk to your doc about your symptoms.

If you are eating a balanced diet, you do not need any of these supplements. One of more of these could be causing your symptoms. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Wish you good health!
