Antidepressants and taste

Hosted by

When food writer Simran Sethi's father died, she lost her sense of taste: "There's so much pleasure in food. All of the sudden, there wasn't and I couldn't make sense of it." After doing some research, Sethi came to the conclusion this was a side effect of the antidepressants she was taking. Read the piece she wrote for MUNCHIES on the connection between antidepressants and taste and listen to the conversation we had with her in February upon the publication of her book Bread, Wine, Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love.
