Depending on whether you have latent or active tuberculosis, your treatment may differ. The following treatments may be used:
Treatment for Latent Tuberculosis
The two kinds of tuberculosis are latent and active.
Latent tuberculosis can reactivate and develop an active illness depending on your risk factors. That’s why, just in case, our doctor might prescribe antibiotics to eliminate the dormant germs.
The three therapy approaches are as follows:
- Isoniazid (INH) is the most popular treatment for latent tuberculosis. An isoniazid antibiotic tablet is usually taken once a day for 9 months.
- Rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane) is an antibiotic that you take once a day for four months. If you suffer INH side effects or contraindications, this is a viable choice.
- Isoniazid and rifapentine are antibiotics that you take once a week for three months under supervision.
Treatment for Active Tuberculosis
You’ll need to take a bunch of antibiotics for several months prescribed by our doctors for active tuberculosis infection. The following are the four most usually prescribed drugs to treat it:
- Ethambutol (Myambutol)
Above mentioned antibiotics tuberculosis drugs are provided by our doctors on the basis of the tuberculosis tests. You need to take three or four drugs for two months based on the tests.
