Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
It is not at all advisable for you to stop the meds.I strongly recommend you not to stop the meds.These drugs are very powerful medicines and so they should be taken as per the course of treatment.If failure occurs , it would be difficult to treat the disease as these drugs may not work anymore.
Regarding the diagnosis , it might be correct.You can opt for more tests like IgM TB , pcr to confirm the diagnosis.
The symptoms you having now could be side effects of drugs you are taking.I advise you to visit your Physician and get a review on your bleeding times , liver function tests.
If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
