Thank you for your query.
Yes it is safe to take these drugs before breakfast that is the way they have been designed to be taken. Their absorption is better on an empty stomach. However if you have severe gastric symptoms like nausea and vomiting, they can be taken after breakfast . Please continue your medication and talk to your doctor before making any change .
I wish you a speedy recovery.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Akhilesh Dubey's  Response
Welcome to HCM,
You have diagnosed to have Tuberculosis, it is important to take anti tubercular drugs Rifampicin, Pyrazinamide and Isoniazid to ensure complete absorption of drugs, although Ethambutol can be taken after food.This also ensures better efficacy of drugs.
It is safe to take ATT empty stomach unless there is severe nausea and vomiting ,if it is there please consult your Physician for advise.
You are taking Benadon which is vitamin can be taken after break fast.
Please continue to take your medicines empty stomach, hope you start improvement soon and you must complete course without stopping them and it may take 6 to 8 months to complete the course and after 2 months there may be some drugs are reduced.
Take care.
Good Luck.
