In AKT 4 , rifampacin need to be taken before food, and rest tablets after food. You can divide the tabs after breakfast and lunch. You need to take vita b 12 cap copulsory for the side effect of drugs. Please take pantroprazole or rabeprazole 20 mg tab before breakfast everyday. It is advised to take more fruits.
