Thank you for posting your query.

Forecox and omnacortil are safe drugs and are routinely used for treating tuberculosis.

With Forecox, you should watch for any liver related side effects (jaundice, abdominal pain, vomiting, etc). In some cases, skin allergies may also occur. But these are uncommon side effects, so, no need to worry.

With omnacortil, some people may gain weight, have pimples, etc. In some cases, blood sugar and blood pressure may also rise.

However, please continue the medications as per the doctor's advice.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
