Rules For Taking TB Medicine In An Advanced Phase?
During the afternoon, I want to ask … for the yellow drug (the advanced phase of TB treatment) is consumed every day or 2 days?
Hello, Ms. vina76en, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Indeed, as you might already know, that the advanced phase of TB treatment is taken for 4 or 5 months. And the drugs taken are types of rifampicin and isoniazid every week 3 times according to the rules in the existing packaging. It's just that if calculated as a whole the schedule of taking medication would certainly be longer, which is usually around 5 months. Generally for the second stage within 4 months can be completed, but the drinking rules are once every 2 days. In essence, for the advanced phase, the drug is taken with a pause or in other words not every day taken as in the treatment of tuberculosis intensive phase or early phase.
Thus our explanation may be useful. Thanks.
