I don't know what causes it, but I drank lemon water and that helped  the flavor in my mouth. Specifically I drank Propel Natural Lemon.

Another medication that is known to cause a metallic taste in your mouth is Flagyl or in England is commonly known as Metronidazole. This medication is an antibiotic used quite commonly to treat infections in the bowels or in people who have bowel conditions such as:Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis.  I have read somewhere that some people with certain types of kidney diseases and liver diseases will get a metallic taste in their mouth. I know a lot about the side effects of Flagyl or Metronidazole because I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 16 years old. My sister and I are 2 out of 3 people world wide who are allergic to Flagyl so we have to take small amounts often to desensitize ourselves to the effects of the drug.  We always get a metallic taste in our mouths from Flagyl no matter what we drink to stop it.

There are a number of things that can cause a metallic taste to develop in the mouth. The breaking down of blood releases iron which is contained in the haemoglobin and this tastes metallic. This can be caused by a nose bleed, sinus or gums. Many types of medications also result in there being a metallic taste being observed in the mouth including penicillin, thyroid medicine and lithium. High protein diets that result in the body starting the process of Ketosis can also result in a metallic taste forming in the mouth. Food allergies associated with sulphur dioxide can also result in a metallic taste being sensed in the mouth. A number of other factors including Bell's palsy, zinc deficiency, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, cancer, sjogren's disease can all result in a metallic taste being sensed in the mouth.

Vitamins can give you a metallic taste, but so can a list of being poisoned. Please be more specific.
