Strange smell from Vicodin?

    Red face Strange smell from Vicodin?

    When I take my daily Lortab, this happens randomly upon dosing during the day: I get this weird plasticy, like aluminum type smell, in my nose. It is a very distinct smell.

    It's kinda annoying, but what the heck could it be? It's happened for awhile...

    It's not uncommon especially during a detox/taper of RX opiates to experience a metallic taste from even water. It's a side effect, doesn't happen to everyone, but I certainly went through it too. It drove me nuts. God bless.

    I was nearly clean before it stopped. Are you taking any other meds? That can also affect it. God bless.

    Sadly, I don't have an answer for you. My Lortab ITSELF smells like citrus.

    I have had a similar experience with getting injections of Ketelorac Tromethamine. (Sorry for the spelling. The brand name is pronounced "Tordol", and I know that's not how it's spelled either.) Anyway, any time I get an injection of this particular drug, I get a very odd taste in my mouth. It's almost an antiseptic taste...it's quite hard to describe. No doctors or nurses have ever heard of this happening until I mentioned it.

    YES, Bonemeal. I get the SAME THING, when they inject me with Lorazepam IV... like I smell it...
