Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.

INH & Rif are the main drugs for treating this & they r dosed well. ...Read more

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.
