Welcome to XXXXXXX

AKT-4 contains isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide.

But AKT-2 contains only isoniazid and rifampicin.

As isoniazid and rifampicin are not contraindicated in pregnancy, thus can be given during pregnancy.

If you have further query in this regard, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,
