I have noticed the last few days when I wake up in the morning I have a faint taste of blood. A bit of research this morning suggests that this could be a side effect of antidepressants. Anybody else have this?

Yes, I get this every day and its worse if I take sleepers. Sometimes it lasts the whole day and makes everything I eat or drink taste yucky but its worth it to me if I get a few hours sleep!!

We appear to go through a lot of the same shit don't we unlucky!

It was something else for me to worry about but looks like it is quite innocent - thankfully.

Off to CBT again in a while - that week flew by.

It went well again apart from the fact I feel a bit withdrawn after. She is going to speak to the psychiatrist to make sure that any letters now stress how much impact my working conditions had on my illness. Feeling positive. :)

Just check

Next time you are at the dentist it would be a good idea to mention it, just incase it is not a side affect..... unless you can see your gums bleeding ot blood on your tootbrush I would not worry about.

MH people can end up with bad teeth so easly.......
