Did a very fast taper off Xanax (alprazolam) thus the 6th day and down to a 1/4 but feel great went from 1mg 2xday(9mo to 2mg (5dys to 1/2(5dy have bad smell nose?

Not usual: Glad to hear that your xanax (alprazolam) taper has generally gone smoothly. I gather from your question that you are sensing a bad smell now, and no one else around you smells it. We call that an olfactory hallucination, and it is not a typical experience when withdrawing from xanax (alprazolam). Another possibility is that your olfactory senses are just a little more acute without xanax (alprazolam). If persists, tell your doctor. ...Read more

Sudden bad breath? Smells like eggs, sometimes in nose as well. Been going on for 4 months now

Gum Disease #1: The #1 reason for bad breath is gum disease. Volatile sulfur compound (vsc) are released which causes the rotten egg smell. There are mouth rinses that will neutralize vscs, but the source, which is most likely infected gums, needs to be treated. You will need to see your dentist to treat any gum infection and your physician to rule out a sinus infection or other possible source of your problem. ...Read more

Bad breath + floss smells after flossing, I don't even have to get it near my nose, especially while flossing molars and p/molars. Pls help.

See dentist: If you have not seen a dentist lately that would be the first thing to do. Periodontal disease is a very common condition in adults, roughly 1 in 3 people have some form of the disease and this can cause the symptoms that you are having. Brushing your tongue or better yet using a tongue scraper can help clean the surface of your tongue which can also be a factor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Gum disease: One possibility is gum disease. The bacteria of gum disease can cause bad breath. Another possibility with or without gum disease is the bacteria of the throat and nose are producing the odor. Diet can be contributing as well as habits such as smoking. In my office we would treat the gum disease or rule it out. 2nd I would prescribe anti bacterial rinse and xylitol gum, starting w small dose. ...Read more
