Can HPV Vaccine Be Given With Pulmonary TB Drugs Together?
, I am a patient of upper right lung and I have to take medication for 6 months, the drugs include rifampicin 450 mg tab, concoction inh 300 mg, pyrazinamide 500 mg, ethambutol 500 mg, cetrizine 10 mg, ranitide 150 mg, curcuma 200 mg this is just I drink 2 mg. I happen to be on the HPV vaccine and will get another vaccine for the second time, well, what I want to ask is whether it will affect my HPV vaccine by taking pulmonary TB medicine? because of the pulmonary TB drug I read in the article on average to kill, inhibit bacterial growth, etc. whereas the HPV vaccine is not from attenuated bacteria / viruses yeah?
Hello Annalize, Thank you for your question.
Tuberculosis (TB / TB) is an infection caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the body that can occur in the lungs (pulmonary TB) or outside the lungs (extra-pulmonary TB). Pulmonary TB is an infection that is more common in the community because the transmission of pulmonary TB is easier to occur, namely by inhaling cough splashes or sneezing from the sufferer. Whatever the type, patients who have TB will be treated with abtituberkulosis (OAT) drugs which will be given for a minimum of 6 months. OAT given will be adjusted to the condition of each sufferer, which is a combination of antibiotics, namely rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, ethambutol, and streptomycin.
Immunization is an act of administering a vaccine to stimulate the immune system to form immunity against certain infections. The vaccine given can be a weakened virus, a dead virus / bacterium / toxin, or a virus particle / part. Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is a vaccine given to prevent cervical cancer and genital warts. HPV vaccine is not made from a weakened virus but from virus particles / parts. Giving this vaccine does not interact with the OAT that you consume. Thus, you can receive the vaccine according to the recommended schedule.
Please take OAT regularly without interruption according to doctor's recommendation. Some side effects of OAT that can appear are nausea, vomiting, jaundice, orange urine, joint pain, vision problems, nerve disorders (tingling, numbness). If you encounter any annoying side effects, please consult your doctor immediately.
