Rules For Taking Medication For Intestinal Tuberculosis?
Afternoon, I want to ask, my 2-year-old child was diagnosed with intestinal tuberculosis, the first control was drugs that had to be taken for 6 months, the second control was zibramax drugs, what are the rules of use?
Hello Yupi Enelish, thank you for asking Alodkoter.
Zibramax is a drug that contains activeazithromycin. Azithromycin itself is a macrolide antibiotic that functions to kill germs due to bacterial infections in the ear, skin, nasal cavity, nasal passages, respiratory tract, lungs or infections elsewhere.
Azithromycin is a strong drug and must be as prescribed or recommended by your doctor. This drug may be taken with or without food, which is at least 1 hour before eating or two hours after eating. However, if your child has complaints of abdominal pain or heartburn, it is advisable to consume after eating.
You should also use up all of the medication even though there are no complaints to prevent bacteria from becoming resistant or antibiotic resistant. If the condition does not improve and for the dose of the drug must be in accordance with the illness and the patient's body weight then you should consult with your doctor.
You also need to know some of the side effects of this drug, namely:
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea or defecation becomes liquid
Drug allergy (reddish rash appears on the body, eyes become swollen lips, shortness of breath, loss of consciousness)
If an allergic reaction occurs the drug should immediately go to the nearest health facility. Hopefully this information is useful for you. Thanks.
