Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs due to infection, while tuberculosis is a disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the lungs. Both are contagious diseases, you should use a mask so you don't infect people around you. If you have children younger than 2 years of age in your home, that child also needs to take medicine to avoid catching you. Patients with tuberculosis do not have to cough up blood. Infiltrates in the lungs that appear on X-rays can also be found in tuberculosis, not only pneumonia. Tuberculosis and pneumonia are difficult to distinguish only by X-ray examination. To establish tuberculosis, sputum examination is required to find Mycobacterium tuberculosis. If the results are negative or the sputum cannot be checked, the doctor can confirm tuberculosis based on clinical examination and x-rays.
Medicines for pneumonia are different from tuberculosis. The medicine you receive is indeed a drug for tuberculosis. The drug is taken for at least 6 months. You should do according to the advice of the doctor who gave you the drug. Before the drug runs out, don't forget to return to the doctor for control. You can ask the doctor for further explanation about your disease. Do not stop medication without a doctor's recommendation because it can be dangerous for you. It is best if you ask someone in your household to act as a medication swallow supervisor whose job is to remind you and make sure you have taken the medicine every day. Open the windows and doors of your house so that sunlight can enter and the house circulation can be maintained.
That's my explanation. I hope this helps.
