Stop Taking TB Drugs When Entering The Third Month Of Treatment?
about 1 and a half years ago I was diagnosed with lymphadinetic tuberculosis
Hello Mput, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Treatment for tuberculosis infection must be completed. Treatment for TB lymphadenitis generally takes at least 9 months or more. Therefore stopping treatment at 3 months is a very unwise decision. Stopping treatment before it's complete can cause the tuberculosis bacteria to not completely heal from your body, reactivate, and may develop resistance to the drugs you are taking.
Therefore, if at this time the lump in your neck has not disappeared, you should go back to your doctor for further examination and therapy. If it is suspected that the lump is glandular TB infection or TB lymphadenitis, then it is likely that the lump will be re-examined along with drug resistance testing.
In the future, when you get treatment again, you must complete your treatment completely according to the instructions from your doctor. Treatment of diseases provided by doctors always adjusts to research and recommendations according to your condition. Therefore, you should not reduce or increase the dose, take medication with your own medication, or stop treatment before your doctor allows it.
