TB MDR (multi drug resistant tuberculosis) is a tuberculosis condition that is resistant to the 2 strongest tuberculosis drugs (OAT), namely isoniazid and rifampicin.
Some conditions that can affect MDR TB are TB dropouts, weak immunity, and contact with MDR TB sufferers. If someone is found to have MDR TB, the treatment is different from the usual new TB cases.
Treatment of MDR TB is by OAT for 9-24 months. The OATs given were the aminoglycosides, thiomides, pyrazinamide, ofloxacin, ethambutol, cycloserine, and PAS acid. The type of drug given is in accordance with the patient's condition and the results of the patient's OAT resistance examination.
Each type of drug has side effects, including the OAT used in MDR TB. If you experience complaints of side effects during MDR TB treatment, you should not stop control or stop treatment. The best step for you is to consult directly with the pulmonologist who treats you about the complaints you are experiencing. The doctor will re-evaluate your condition and provide treatment for your complaint.
Stay enthusiastic about undergoing MDR TB treatment.
