Hello Inayah, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Bone TB or also known as Pott's disease, is tuberculosis / tuberculosis that occurs outside the lungs, which attacks the bones especially the spine. In the treatment of bone tuberculosis, the principle is the same as tuberculosis in general, because the cause of bone tuberculosis is a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis which is to eliminate these bacteria using antibacterial drugs or also known as antibiotics.
WHO until now still recommends effective treatment for patients with TB is the DOTS method or Directly Observed Treatment Shortcourse Chemotiency where certain antibiotic drugs that can kill TB germs that are taken / consumed within a certain time that has been determined and directly monitored. Drop out of TB drugs or Drop Out of TB drugs is a condition of dropping out of treatment for 2 months or more with smear results still positive.
In your case, if you have forgotten to take your TB medicine, but you have taken it as soon as you remember it is not a drop out category, so you can still continue your medication schedule as usual. You need to know that if when you remember to take the medicine and it has entered the time you take the next scheduled medicine, then you should not double the dose of the drug (taking the medicine you forgot to take). Because it is not necessary, so you can continue taking the drug as scheduled as usual. However, it is better to maintain a disciplined medication schedule because an incorrect schedule will affect the effectiveness of the drug. Thus we can convey, hopefully answering your questions.
