Bad taste in my mouth in the morning.?

Why do I feel like I have foul breath in the morning when I brush for two minutes and then follow up before bedtime? I wake up , I brush, yet the D.D.S. says I have no disease. Serious answers only please.

    If your are a smoker or heavy coffee drinker, this can cause bad breath or even certain medication (like anti-epileptic, blood pressure medications and even some herbal/natural medicines) Try brushing your tongue (I know this sound silly but it does work!) There are now toothbrushes that have a 'tongue scrubber' on the opposite side to the brush, but are more expensive, so a normal tooth brush should work. One other thing make sure you have washed out ALL of the toothpaste as this can also make you breath smell in the morning. I hope this helps.
