Thanks for your query
Many a times anti-tb drugs are given in our country specially on the basis of radiological finding even after repeated negative sputum samples. They are known as sputum negative pulmonary tb. As India is endemic for tb anti-tb drugs are given on radiological basis and your physician did the right job to give you ATD on radiological suspicion. Though you did not post your x-ray pic but i think your physician did the right job. Continue the medications prescribed by your doctor. You are now on the intensive phase containing 4 drugs and your doc asked you to get back to him after 2 months in order to start continuation phase consisting of 2 drugs only.
Thank you.
