Under the article on AGEUSIA, there is not one reference to any medications (drugs) that cause this uncommon reaction pattern. There are at least sixty (60) generic medications that have been reported to cause ageusia. Some common brand name drugs are Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Prozac (fluoxetine), Paxil (paroxetine), Dilantin (phenytoin), Effexor (venlafaxine), and others. Respectfully, Jerome Z.

Aile ou cuiss (the film)[edit]

The bit about "Aile ou cuisse" (the film) is not relevant. If it is included, other instances of ageusia in fiction should be supplied, and more background about the film "Aile ou cuisse" (what year it was made, where, who by, the tone of the film, etc) should be given. As it is, mention of the film comes across as promotional propaganda (esp. supporting the foodie/fatist POV—probably a rogue Spurlock/Oliver fan). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ontoursecretly (talkcontribs) 11:20, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

The effect of smell on taste[edit]

"Because the tongue can only indicate texture and differentiate between sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami, most of what is perceived as the sense of taste is actually derived from smell"

A very daring statement with no reference — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:04, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
