Hi rajeevreddy24
Thanks for coming at HCM
Macox plus contains rifampicin 450 mg and isiniazide 300 mg.
One important side effect of this drug is gastritis which may manifest as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite.
The other possibility can be jaundice/hepatitis due to you must go for liver function test of your mother and if SGPT/SGOT is raised more than 3 times the normal drug has to be stopped for a few days till the repeat test is normal and then re-started....

consult your doctor for the same...

best wishes
