Hi Fluff.

This side effect is not uncommon and is known as taste perversion. I experienced this with Lamictal, an anticonvulsant, when I first started taking it. For me, plain water tasted like someone dumped a bunch of salt into it. The side effect disappeared within a few months. Hopefully it will for you too.

I hope this helps.
