How To Continue The Yellow Lymph Node TB Drug?
All, I’m a 19-year-old woman, said to have lymph node tuberculosis. I have been taking red medicine for 56 days. And will change the yellow drug. My question is how to connect the yellow drug. Is it at a distance of a day after finishing the red drug, or immediately taking the yellow medicine the next day?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
When you take medicines for your tuberculosis treatment, your doctor must have explained how to take your medicines. When you buy or take medicine at a pharmacy, your pharmacist also must have clearly written how to take your medicine on the label of the drug.
Tuberculosis treatment continued for 4 months with 2 types of drugs, namely Rifampicin and Isoniazid. The yellow tablets given are fixed-dose combinations (KDT) that contain both drugs. Drugs taken 3 times a week with the amount of drug that depends on your weight.
If indeed your doctor has not explained to you how many yellow tablets you should take or the pharmacy where you buy the medicine has not written the etiquette clearly, then you can call the pharmacy where you take the medicine to ask again how many drugs you should take (the doctor would have write it down in the recipe). If your doctor does not clearly write down the prescription, then the pharmacy has an obligation to call your doctor and ask clearly for your medication dosage.
If you already know how many tablets you should take one drink, then you can determine for yourself whenever you need to take medicine, for example you want to take Monday-Wednesday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday. You can take your medication according to the schedule. Make sure you take your medication according to schedule and don't miss it.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
