Hi I am Dr.kadhir,

Tuberculosis in pregnancy could be life threatening to the mother and the baby if untreated. Treatment supervision and compliance to the drug therapy are the key for successful treatment.

AKT 3 contains isoniazid, rifampicin & ethambutol. Both AKT4 [ also contains pyrazinamide] & AKT3 are safe in pregnancy. I can reassure you that they are not associated with any side effects in babies growth.

Close monitoring of liver function is must during the treatment. Pyridoxine should be taken along with AKT 3 in all pregnant women, so see that it is in your prescription.

Most important is good diet, regular treatment, follow up.

Thank you for the consultation in health care magic.
