Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Regular consumption of OAT (anti-tuberculosis drug) is one of the important keys that determine the cure of TB. This certainly should not be underestimated. Because, given the long duration of treatment, often arise feeling lazy or forgetful consuming OAT which can make the healing process run longer and the potential for transmission will be greater. Therefore, not only sufferers, all families and cadres of community health centers in the community are also responsible for ensuring the regularity of this treatment.
Delay in consuming OAT, as your family does, can reduce the effectiveness of OAT work. However, if this only happens once, often this is not dangerous. Most importantly, prevent similar incidents from recurring, for example by setting an alarm to take medication, sticking to a medication schedule in an easily visible place, asking to be reminded by friends or closest relatives related to taking medication schedule, and so on.
Do not forget, regular control of disease development in doctors, internal medicine specialists, or pulmonary specialists (if TB infection occurs in the lungs) so that treatment can be carried out optimally ...
I hope this helps.
