Rifampicin -containing drug can achieve high cure rates in patients with Pulmonary Tuberculosis when given for six months.
Continue the said medicine, and take some AYURVEDA MEDICINES also in addition.
Take CHYAWAN PRASH AVALEHA 20 gms twice daily.
Take VASARISHTAM 30 ml twice daily.
wish you good health.

Hi, it depends on the state of your lungs. The TB could damage your lungs and it cause you caugh. But you should consult with your doctor because he has to order a new sputum to rule out a PTB resistant form (resistant to antibiotics you are taking).
