TB treatment: First you need a diagnosis so you need to see a doctor immediately. Mask to prevent spread. A TB culture will be obtained. Most start 4 antitb medications until its know to which medicines the infection is susceptible (takes about 1mo). Then decrease to the fewest number of medicines possible based on the culture tests & based on your disease burden & your treatmt response. Most cured in 6mo.
