Hello sir and welcome.

Benadon is nothing but a vitamin supplement that will help with the efficacy of the anti-tubercular medications. Whereas r-cinex contains isoniazid and rifampicin. Both of which are included in the C category of pregnancy drugs. This category includes drugs which can have side effects, but not always do. So if at all your wife is showing signs of TB and this is a risk versus benefit scenario, then it is best to continue with these medications.

Cough will be present as long as the infection is present and the bronchoscopy was successful, although not completely therapeutic.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
