Forgot To Take Tuberculosis Medication Which Is The Morning Schedule?
Can I take the forgotten medicine when it is daytime along with the medication that I take 1×2 or 1×3 per day after eating, when I forget in the morning, while the one before taking it is 1×1
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
TB drugs (tuberculosis) are drugs that must be taken regularly every day for at least 6 months or more depending on the tuberculosis experienced. To make it easier for patients and reduce the likelihood of forgetting to take medication, fixed dose combination tuberculosis drugs are now available. Try to discuss later about this type of medication with the doctor who treats it. Indeed, not all TB patients can be given this drug, because fixed dose combinations contain first-line anti-tuberculosis drugs. Meanwhile, there are several cases of TB that can no longer be given first-line drugs. Of course what about your case is only known by doctors who examine you directly.
Meanwhile, the forgotten 1x1 drug, you can take when you remember, as long as the distance with the next consumption is still far away. As you planned, you will take the medicine that should be in the morning at noon, this you can do, because the time interval of consumption with the next drug is still long.
But if you forget to take your medicine again and want to ask again, you should include the name of the medicine that you forgot with the name of the medicine that you will take along with the drug that you forgot. Because there is a possibility of drug interactions that need to be considered by a doctor. However, of course the best hope is if you do not forget to take your medication on time.
Thus hopefully useful.
