Hello sir, my age 24 and my weight is approximately 50. I have lung infection tb. I have been given akt3 (there are 2 tablet or capsule, I don't know if it is rifampicin, ethabutelor, isoniazid) to cure it. I want to know how should I take akt3? In prescription there is mentioned one tablet or capsule per day but chemist sellers says that I should take both tablets per day. Please advise how should I take it?

If fresh infection and initial treatment, Then better start with four drugs having rifampicin, etyhambutol, isoniazid and pyrazinamide as per weight for first 2 months and then drop pyrazinamide and continue rest for next 4 months. All drugs should be taken together empty stomach with water.
