Hello,

For multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, the antibiotics are given according to the culture sensitivity report. The medicines you are getting will help you but it can be associated with many side effects.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
