Hi....R-Cinex is an anti tuberculosis drug. It depends on the indication for which it is given. The usual side effects are liver related like hepatitis and jaundice. If I were your pediatrician I would like to follow up every 3 months once with liver function tests or at least liver enzymes. Not only that I would also urge you to be on the look out for jaundice and if this develops please get back to your pediatrician. Regards - Dr. Sumanth
