Missing One Type Of TB Drug?
Morning, I am a woman aged 22 years, 2 months ago I was diagnosed with pleural TB, thank God these 2 months I never forgot to take the medicine and was on time, only yesterday because there was no longer 1 kind of medicine, I forgot to take the medicine after eating , the medicine is vit TB 6, while for the rifamphicin type yesterday I drank it, r n r nMaybe it was because I felt the medicine was still taking one time, until the schedule was taking medicine, I just realized, it turns out I haven’t taken the medicine after eating it, counted not yet 24 hours from the schedule it should be, I quickly drank it, and continued as usual, r n r nHow do doctors recommend my forgetfulness? Do I have to start over? Thank you doctor in advance
TB is a bacterial infection that can attack various organs such as the lungs, lining of the lungs (pleura), bones, lymph nodes. TB requires treatment using certain anti-TB drugs for a certain period of time.
TB Vit 6 is a drug that contains isoniazid and vitamin B6. If you miss 1 dose of the drug, then you can continue the dose of the drug as usual. You can ignore 1 missed dose, and take the next medicine as usual. If you only miss 1 dose, as in your situation, there is no need to repeat the treatment.
It is important for you to remember to take medication regularly according to schedule. besides it is recommended that you periodically control the doctor who treats you.
