Hi,i go throw your medical history your physician suggest you to switch over from Rcinex to Mucox 600 thats no problem that are the same things.
now if you taking 1 Rcinex and 1 pyrezinamide and 1 ethmbutol total 3 then its all right but if you taking Mucox 600 3 tab. a day then its so high level of drug.
normal dose of Rif. in active tb is 10-20 mg/kg/day or max. up to 600mg/day.
so just confirm with your physician before taking high dose medicine.
but dont stop without asking with him.
