Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, in case of tuberculosis omnacortil is contraindicated , it causes flare up tuberculosis , so not given in tuberculosis. it is only given in brain TB. so if your father has beem suffering from TB he should not take omnacortil. solonex DT 100mg is drug of TB contain isoniazid, but this dose is given in children , this dose is not effective in adult, petiol D is for gastritis. so you should discuss it with your doc n start proper treatment, as TB is curable.
