What Are The Side Effects Of ATK3 And ATK2?

I had TB pleural effusion in the left lung in Jan 2012. In Feb I was admitted to hospital for chest tube drain and 500 ml of water was removed. Since Jan I had taken AKT4 and from Feb till July 31st, for 5 months I have taken AKT3. Is it necessary to continue with AKT3 for the next 3 months OR can I take it on alternate days OR Can I switch over to AKT2 ? to prevent recurrence of TB ? Now, the chest X ray has shown clear and all bacteria dead. I have lot of body pain and my legs have become very weak . What are side effects of ATK3 and ATK2. I am 70 +. Kindly reply IMMEDIATELY. Thanking you Radhika
