HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Treatment should be continued for the 9 month period as requested by your doctor.

During and possibly after therapy is completed (depending on your response) you should have sputum analysis done weekly till the point when it no longer detects the bacteria.

Your doctor will monitor for a relapse.

I hope this helps
