Side Effects Of Overdosing On Pyrazinamide Drugs?
Hello, I want to ask you a pyrazinamide drug for tuberculosis, if you take it at the same time, 2 tablets will have no side effects. thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Tuberculosis drug dosage must always be adjusted to each person's body weight. For example, for the drug pyrazinamide, adults with tuberculosis with a standard body weight (50-70kg) are advised to consume 3 tablets directly. Therefore, if based on your weight, your doctor recommends taking 2 tablets at a time, there will be no side effects, because 2 tablets are needed to reach the therapeutic dose. If you are not clear about how to take your medication, you should confirm back with the doctor who treats you about how to take your antituberculosis medication.
In general, if you consume drugs in excessive doses, the risk of side effects can indeed increase. Some of the side effects of pyrazinamide include:
muscle and joint pain
feeling weak and easily tired
Taking an overdose of pyrazinamide only once may not increase the risk of side effects or complications in the liver. However, read carefully your medicine etiquette before you take your medicine. Make sure you take the medicine according to the rules written in etiquette.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
