I have a cold or sinus infection and was prescribed azithromycin. After three doses, I completely lost my senses of smell and taste. Is this normal?

In brief: All tastes the same.

This is a relatively common side effect of taking the medication.
It does not affect everybody, but I guess you're one of the lucky ones.
