Hello, thank you for your question.
Tuberculosis (TB) or also known as TB is a disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterial infection can occur in the lungs, brain, skin, or lymph nodes. The term tuberculosis refers to tuberculosis infection in the lungs.
TB treatment requires various types of antibiotic combinations, such as rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol. Some of the side effects of treatment that may occur include fatigue, yellow skin, fever, lower abdominal pain, red skin, itching, bleeding in the nose, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dark urine, tingling sensation, easy bruising, and dizzy.
Your symptoms may be related to the side effects of treatment. However, to ascertain other causes or not, of course, requires direct examination by a doctor. As for the supporting examinations that will be needed, for example, blood tests, X-rays, or other examinations as indicated. In the meantime you can take the vitamins as you mention.
