Treatment for TB meningitis is Anti TB drugs.Along with them pyridoxine i.e, Vitamin B6 is also given so as to counteract the side effects of these drugs. TB is completely curable as long as treatment is taken for the prescibed time and no dose is missed. Most of the time, treatment for TB meningitis in India is given for a period ranging between 6-9 month ,depending upon the progress. However, Multidrug resistant and extremly drug resistant TB are seperate entities that one has to keep in mind as these cases are on the rise recently . They can be ruled out by culture and sensitivity of CSF before starting the treatment.
