i am taking sunitinib (Sutent) and for the second time have lost all taste, sometimes a metal taste . I read on this forum that taking Lglutamine might help. I have been taking 5grams /day for 2 weeks to no avail. I'm not sure if the dosage is right or not. Anyone out there with this problem?

    Same experience with taste but after six months either I dont realize it or some of my taste has come back.  Been on it for two years.  I find taste the smallest side effect I have exerienced.
