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

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

TB treatment : we usually use Ethambutol as part of this regimen in case the TB is resistant to either Rifampin or isoniazid. 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

How does taking isoniazid (not rifampin) affect the effectiveness of oral contraceptive?

How does taking isoniazid (not rifampin) affect the effectiveness of oral contraceptive?

No presuming: I presume this is for a +PPD and/or latent TB or related organism. There is no specific interaction with OC's, but since INH/Isoniazid affects so many hepatic or liver cytochromes that it is best to discuss with the physician prescribing the Isoniazid or with an OB/GYN. I will say that this is a great question. ...Read more

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

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
