Thanks for asking.

She is having treatment for tuberculosis, which is a chronic illness needing constant treatment for 6-9 months.

All these drugs needs to be taken for 2 months , then regime will be two drugs only , which also can be given in combination for another 4-6 months.

Do check the liver functions and uric acid while on these drugs regularly.


Please let me know if you need further information.
