Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Antituberculosis drugs are recommended to be taken on an empty stomach to increase their absorption by the body. The use of this drug is recommended about 1 hour before eating or 2 hours after eating. Make sure you take this medicine with as much as one full glass of water. Don't forget to take antituberculosis drugs on a regular schedule every day.
The use of antituberculosis drugs on an empty stomach does help the process of absorption of this drug, but risks causing side effects such as heartburn. If you experience these side effects, do not hesitate to consult with your treating doctor. Your doctor may recommend you to take this medicine along with food, or if necessary add drugs to make your stomach more comfortable. Make sure you give an interval of about 1 hour if you also get an antacid stomach medication to make sure that the antituberculosis drug can still be absorbed and working properly.
