Rules For Taking Medication For Glandular TB Disease?
Hello ,, I am a glandular TB patient who has been undergoing treatment entering the ninth month. My question is, is there a way to find out if I am regularly taking the prescribed medication? Given that TB drugs have to be taken every day for a certain period of time, in my case it was recommended for 12 months. So, recently I came across a drug that I was taking in the first two months of treatment. Even though the medicine should have run out, then I doubted whether I really took the medicine every day or not. thanks.
Tuberculosis bacterial infection is an infectious bacterial infection that can attack almost all parts of the body, the most common being pulmonary tuberculosis and glandular tuberculosis. Self-medication is long enough where the shortest is 6 months and the rest follows the patient's condition which can last up to 12 months.
Self-medication should be taken as directed where the initial / intensive phase of treatment is carried out for the first 2 months then monitoring whether there are still positive bacteria or not before proceeding to the advanced phase. If in the initial / intensive phase of treatment is not good or true, positive bacteria can be found which makes the treatment must be added to the insert for 1 month and then checked again before proceeding to the advanced phase.
If you are in the first 2 months or the initial phase does not occur then it is likely that your condition is good and you can continue to the advanced phase, but to make sure you need to consult directly with your doctor about this. Try to take the medicine according to the recommendations and schedule so that the treatment can be complete and can be fully recovered.
