DEAR SIR/MADAM

I AM VERY SORRY THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED AS TUBERCULOSIS. USUALLY IN OUR COUNTRY WE FOLLOW 4 DRUGS FOR TWO MONTHS AND THEN 2 DRUGS FOR 4 MONTHS PROTOCOL WHILE TREATING IT.
THE COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF THESE ANTI TUBERCULAR DRUGS INCLUDE
1. INCREASED HEAPTIC ENZYMES
2. HYPERACIDITY
3. RASHES.
4. SOME TIMES IT MAY CAUSE NEPHROTOXICITY

SO LIVER AND RENAL FUNCTION TESTS ARE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR CONTINUATION OF THESE DRUGS.
INCREASE YOUR CALORIES INTAKE GRADUALLY, AND CONTINUE TO TAKE PANTAPRAZOLE 40 MG BEFORE BREAKFAST.

THANKS
