Is TB Treatment Said To Have Failed If 1 Dose Of Medication Is Forgotten?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. TB infection (Tuberculosis) does require treatment in the long term because it is not easy to eliminate the bacteria from your body. With long treatment and more than one type of drug, patients often feel bored or not aware of what they are taking. So what you experience actually happens often, and missing a dose doesn't necessarily make your treatment fail, and you should continue with your usual medication schedule.
But of course with TB treatment that has exceeded 1 year, which in general cases usually only takes 6 months, the doctor who treats you must have his own judgment and standards in assessing the severity and what to do if you miss 1 dose.
What we want to convey is, the answer to your question will be best answered by the doctor who treats you. So to avoid misunderstandings, you should ask your doctor again about the condition you are experiencing to be more certain. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
