This is a combination of 4 drugs to treat tuberculosis. Unlikely to cause dementia per se, but could have cognitive side effects. Since this medication may be crucial, it is important to balance side effects with desired outcomes. Discuss with your provider. Psychological evaluation may help guide considerations.
