Why do I have a strong metallic taste in my mount after using latisse?

I tried latisse for the first time today. I applied a drop to each eyebrow. Now I have a very strong yucky metallic taste in my mouth. Is this normal?

Latisse - side effect

Hi there,Metallic taste in the mouth is unrelated to Latisse. I suggest consulting with your general practitioner or with the plastic surgeon's office that you obtained the product from.

Metallic taste after Latisse

Hello skin.  This is not a side effect of Latisse so would be unrelated.  If the taste concerns you, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician.
