Can TB be treat with rifampin (RIF), pyrazinamide (PZA), and ethambutol (EMB) only??? Just stop INH due the high enzymes waiting for the next treat

Yes: Santa Clara TB control is very good and will advise you and your doctor of any further changes based on nature of the TB infection (lung vs other sites), duration of treatment so far, susceptibility of the TB isolates, and other factors. However, if lab abnormality is with liver enzymes, usually rifampin is held as well. ...Read more

M 20 yr female TB lymphadenitis. Prescribed R-cinex:Rifampin 450mg & isoniazid 300mg & pyzina 1000mg. Ethambutol not prescribed is my treatment correct?

If your doctor already knows which drugs the big is susceptible to, or if resistance rates are very low in your area, leave out the Ethambutol may be the correct treatment. You should discuss this issue with the prescribing doctor. ...Read more

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

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
