Tuberculosis

The initial phase of treatment for TB is 4 antibiotics given for 2months. None of these antibiotics are used for other diseases so the likelihood of resistance is low(except for RMP). Then the continuation period is for 4 months during which RMP and INH are given for this period. In patients who have a sensitive TB,tolerate the drugs and adhere to the long term treatment plan. The cure rates are greater than 98%. it's time!End tuberculosis. #itstimetoendtuberculosis #itstime #toendtuberculosis #letsendtuberculosis @curofy
