Changes To Prescription For Medication?
Afternoon doctor, I was doing a new lung tuberculosis treatment for 1 month. What I want to ask is that there was a change in the time of taking the medicine. That was pyrazinamide, ethambutol taken after meals but after controlling again pyrazinamide and etambutol were taken before meals. eat also take rifamficin and isoniazid medicine? please answer yes … thanks.
Treatment for pulmonary TB takes a long time and requires good adherence and discipline. If the doctor asks you to take Pyrazinamide and Ethambutol before eating, but you are in doubt, you should ask the doctor who has treated you all this time. Maybe your doctor has specific medical reasons related to your condition.
If after taking the medicine according to the new instructions the doctor and you do not experience any complaints, then you should continue to consume a combination of anti-pulmonary TB drugs given to you. Some tips that can be applied during treatment:
Eat a balanced nutritious food. Try not to abstain from certain foods if you don't have other diseases besides pulmonary TB. Keep your room and house clean, make sure there is adequate air circulation and sunlight can enter the room. If there are children or parents who live with you and have not done a medical examination with a doctor, you should schedule a consultation with a doctor. Pulmonary TB is a contagious disease, so family members who are often closely related to you need further examination. Use a mask when traveling out of the house. Take drugs at the same time every day. Read more about:
