Hi Varsha,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
T.B. in today's world is difficult disease to treat due to rampant resistant TB bacteria.
Your doctor might have found a difficult to treat, resistant type of infection in you. Such revert back type of decision are taken by the doctors when patients fail to progressively improve, and these strategies frequently work and are appropriate.
So keep a faith in your doctor and keep a regular follow up.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
