Forgot To Take TB Medicine As Scheduled?
, I want to ask, I have tuberculosis, I take medicine 3 times a week, but I can take medicine on Wednesday, so I can get it right, is that okay?
Hello Rhiachia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis treatment is very important to follow the recommended therapeutic recommendations to ensure that the treatment being undertaken runs optimally.
If you forget to consume on Wednesday and take the medicine the next day, it will not matter as long as you continue to take your TB medication at the right dose and take it 3 times a week in total.
Henceforth, it is strongly recommended not to miss or forget to take the drug again as recommended, especially if it is missed repeatedly due to the risk of causing treatment failure and resulting in treatment should be done longer or switch regimens because of the resistance of the TB bacteria to drugs when this is used. It is also recommended to complete the treatment as it should and control with the doctor according to the schedule.
I hope this helps.
