Hello and welcome to HCM
Forecox is used for tuberculosis. It is a combination of rifampicin
, isonazide, etambutol and pyrazinamide
These are first line drugs for tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is a chronic disease which is characterised by rise in ESR
The course for the disease is long and spans for a period of 9 months to one and a half years depending on the site infected by tubersulosis. So, fifeteen days is a very short period for effect to appear.
You need to wait for atleast one month to see the effect.
Similarly ESR comes to its normal value after the infection comes under sontrol.
It will take same time.
Continue the medication and visit your treating doctor at regular intervals.
If you are suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis
then you will have to under go sputum examination for confirming the absence of infection.
Thank you and take care
