Operated for intestinal obstruction. Biopsy report diagnosed Extra Pulmonary Tuberculosis. Took Akurit-4 and AKT2 instead of Akurit-2. Am I taking right medication?

Hi, I was operated for intestinal obstruction and after the biopsy report it was diagnosised as Extra Pulmonary Tuberculosis . Dr prescribed Akurit-4 for two months and Akurit-2 for the next for months. But I don t find Akurit-2 anywhere in my city and AKT2 has been used in place of Akurit-2 as per the doctor s suggestion. BTW, I m 16years old girl . So far, I have not experienced any side effects. Please let me know am I under right medication wrt AKT2? Regards, Sravani.

Thanks for posting your query

As far as extrapulmonary tuberculosis is concerned the response of medicine is judged by the resolution of symptoms

If there are no symptoms right now you are on the right track

Also you may get an ESR done , though non specific a comparision with a baseline will help

There are specific TB investigations available in case of any doubt

Regarding Akurit-2 and AKT-2 both are same so go ahead and finish up

Hope this helps
