Total treatment for tb is usually 6 to 9 months. Diabetics may require longer treatment. Joint pains might be due to other causes as well as drugs. Uric acid, liver enzymes may be elevated. Good control of diabetes is very important for quick recovery. The patient requires clinical exam.

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Jaipur
Hello, If you have cough without sputum (sputum is a mixture of saliva and mucus coughed up from the respiratory tract), I would like to advise you to - 1. Take proper rest/ drink lot of fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Do warm Saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 3. Take a cough syrup (Grilinctus OR Banadryl) 10 ml three times a day for 2-3 days.

First of all, just ensure that you have an extra inhaler. Because nothing works like the inhalers. If still such situation occurs, steam inhalation and some coffee may help. Don't panic and control your breath. Final line- inhalers are the best, usually no alternative for fast relief. If no relief, don't delay trying home remedies, rush to the nearby hospital.
