Not sure: This is a complicated question to answer in this format. Are you sure those are the only TB meds you've been prescribed? You're on an unusual combination of medications which makes me suspect you've been diagnosed with a resistant form of tuberculosis. Hopefully you are seeing someone who is experienced in the treatment of TB, and who can tailor therapy appropriately for this serious disease. ...Read more

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.
TB treatment: You are being treated with 4 medications which is good - since it doesn't allow the TB bacteria any good chance of 'escaping' from the treatment. Hopefully only 1 drug is really needed- but I expect you may find that out in the future. Your ethambutol dose and pyrazinamide doses could be a little bit higher, but I am not worried. INH & Rif are the main drugs for treating this & they r dosed well. ...Read more
I am starting to take Pyrazinamide, Rifampin and Ethambutol but also I have RA and I start to fell pain in my joints again is safe to take HYDROcodone?
It's not unsafe: But may or may not be the best answer. There are multiple medications, both new and old, to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and reduce the painful joints by actually reducing the arthritis itself. Hydrocodone or any other opioid will reduce pain somewhat, but carry risks of escalating doses, dependency and even eventually INCREASING the pain itself. It should be used short-term. See a rheumatologist ...Read more
Could mycobutin (rifabutin) 150 mg Ethambutol 400 mg and Azithromyocin 250 cause chills, sweats, EXTREME nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and achiness or is it a virus?
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
