Toramine And Bactesyn Drugs For Pulmonary And Glandular TB Sufferers?
Mlm. My wife has pulmonary and glandular TB, after checking and taking TB drugs a week. The wife complained of pain in the enlarged glands and was prescribed additional drugs toramine and bactesyn. Is it safe for my wife, considering the wife is breastfeeding a child who is 12 months old? The drug has been purchased but has not been consumed.
Thank you for the question.
TB (tuberculosis) can indeed affect a variety of organ systems, not to mention the lungs and lymph nodes. This disease symptoms can differ depending on the location and severity of the disease. In pulmonary TB, often patients will feel a productive cough for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by tightness, and chest pain. Meanwhile, people with glandular TB (lymphadenitis) will experience lumps resembling marbles (often in the neck, armpit, or groin area) which can feel pain, redness, swelling, even bleeding or festering when inflamed. These complaints will often appear accompanied by systemic symptoms, such as prolonged low-grade fever, excessive sweating, fatigue, weight loss, and so on.
The condition of your wife who feels pain in the inflamed lymph nodes, in addition can be caused by her own disease, if it also indicates her lymph nodes are infected or secondary irritated. Is the right step for you to check your wife back to the doctor so that her complaints are treated properly. The drugs you mentioned have different functions, which are anti-pain (toramine, which contains ketorolac) and antibiotics (bactesyn, which contain sultamicillin, ampicillin, and sulbactam). Consumption of these drugs in nursing mothers is not recommended (unless it is prescribed directly by a doctor) because it can flow through breast milk and affect the health of the baby being breastfed. However, if it is true that the drug has been prescribed directly by a doctor, then the drug may be given. The doctor who examines your wife, with her competence and experience, surely understands the best steps to be taken for her condition. When in doubt, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion by checking your wife back k doctor or other internal medicine doctor ..
Here are some suggestions from us for your wife:
Warm compresses to the painful glands and always keep them clean, don't push them or move them too much
Get plenty of rest, limit activities outside the home (this can also reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 which is endemic today)
Eat and drink healthy, rich in calories and protein
Stay away from cigarettes
Don't stress or worry too much
Continue to breastfeed your baby, unless the doctor recommends otherwise
If you cough, use a mask
Go for TB treatment according to your doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
