Loss of smell/taste?

3 posts in this topic

I'm 15 months into withdrawal and its gotten slightly better but I still have a severely blunted sense of smell and taste. A potential side effect of amphetamine is hyper sense or smell so it definitely effects it. Has anyone else noticed this and if so how long was it until it was back to normal? 2 years? 3?

I am pretty close to you in my recovery at 1.5yrs. I also question my sense of smell quite often. Some days I smell more than others which I am constantly checking smelling things. I do have some allergies that I am certain interfere at times but there are days that my nose if as clear as ever and my smell is much less than I ever remember. As for taste, I haven’t noticed that so much but I can say I am not as excited about food as I used to be. I just eat because I have to not because I have deep cravings or excited about a certain dish and/or flavors. 

If you do research on our specific list of symptoms most of us complain about it is basically like we have ourselves a clinical example of mild dementia. The good news is that ours in therory not being neurodegenerative we have the chance to heal and improve these symptoms over time... It just feels like a horribly slow process

I’m almost 4 months in withdrawal and I was thinking to myself that all the Triscuit flavors I’ve been having taste the same. :blink::blink::blink:
