Hello Bari, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
TB drugs that are recommended to be used until now in Indonesia are indeed recommended to be consumed uninterruptedly for a certain period of time to prevent worsening conditions, treatment failure and TB bacteria resistance to the drugs used.
Until now, it is very minimal regarding the interaction of TB drugs with natural ingredients such as those contained in herbal medicines that you want to be consumed by your brother, so it is advisable to further consult about their use with the doctor who is treating your brother, to determine whether Your brother needs the intake of herbal medicine or not and how to recommend further use.
In the meantime, it is not advisable to consume it, especially taking it together with TB medicine until there is further advice from the doctor who is treating your brother. It is also recommended that you and other family members help supervise your relatives so that the current TB treatment is in accordance with the doctor's recommendations to help achieve successful treatment.
I hope this helps.
