Drug Dosage For Advanced Pulmonary Tuberculosis?
How is the dosage of drugs for advanced pulmonary tuberculosis? R nI went to the health center, the dose of the drug was one dose of 3 drugs. And I checked with a pulmonary specialist at a private hospital, my BB was 65, the doctor at the hospital said that I had to take 4 pills of medicine at a time because my BB had increased. And I told the doctor at the puskesmas that I had to drink 4, not 3. But the puskesmas doctor said, I don’t have to drink 4 pills. Still 3. R n r nI am confused. Any suggestions?
