Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, Akurit 4 contains rifampicin 150 mg, isoniazid 75 mg, ethambutol 275 mg, pyrazinamide 400 mg and Forecox tablet also contains rifampicin 150 mg, isoniazid 100 mg, ethambutol 275 mg, pyrazinamide 500 mg. But it sometimes happens that one may tolerate one drug combination (slight change in quantity) and also the film-coating present may prevent GI problems to some extent. Thanks
