Hi, my husband has been diagnosed with intestinal tuberculosis and has been put on AKT4 drug from yesterday. He is feeling pukish after eating the tablets, along with AKT 4 he is also taking Orofer XT, Omez-D, and Folvite Tablets.The doctor has recommended to have the AKT 4 in 2 divided doses, i.e, 2 inbetween breakfast and 2 inbetween lunch. Please let me know if this is fine.

Nausea and vomiting are one of the common side effects of AKT.That is the one of the reasons to give these medications in divided doses.However if still the symptoms are unbearable you may discuss with your doctor.Compliance to medication is very important in getting tuberculosis cured.Donot discontinue the treatment without medical supervision.Hope this helps.Take care.Your husband will get well soon.
