4 hours minmum: First check to see if medication is long acting. If so, wait 6-8 hours if possible. Minimal time between different meds with same ingredient should be 4 hours. Do not exceed total of 3, 000mgs acetominophen per day.

Unusual side affect: Medications used to treat TB very rarely cause memory loss, or other brain insults. If you are experiencing such symptoms, see your doctor and get checked for other underlying causes.

Get checked: Stool color is generally due to diet and to the bile (yellowish-green fluid that aids in digestion) secreted from your guts. Bile + food is altered by enzymes that changes food from yellow to brown. While your diet/medications can play a large role in stool color, get checked if the dark brown borders on black.
