The Impact Of Taking The Wrong Tuberculosis Drug?
Hello Aacim, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Antituberculosis drugs (OAT) should be consumed properly and correctly in accordance with the rules given by the doctor. This is so that these drugs can work effectively to kill the Tuberculosis bacteria in the body. However, forgetting to take medication only once will most likely not reduce the effectiveness of the drug.
For the next you should take your medicine according to the schedule given. Install a medication reminder on your cellphone when it is necessary so that you can take your medication on time. In addition, another important thing that you need to pay attention to is that you must complete the treatment completely (at least 6 months or more). Taking OAT carelessly or not completing treatment completely can cause reactivation of Tuberculosis bacteria and cause bacterial resistance to the given OAT.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
