There is no reason for you to continue Pyrazinamide so long. And why is there no isoniazid in the prescribed drugs. The regimen you using for to cure tb is not correct. It should contain rifampicin, isoniazid, Pyrazinamide and ethambutol for 2-3 months and later the drugs should be continued without Pyrazinamide only for 9 months at the most in total. I don't understand the reason for 1.5 yrs of treatment. Even if it's bone tb the drugs should be for 1 year and without Pyrazinamide.

Hi, you have not mention how much defective is the pack cover and for how many duration. If this is in a short period of time sometimes may be due to pressure from outside and tablet is intact, it should work for 100%

The defective package does not mean the drug is ineffective and hence you need not repeat taking it.

Secondary Prevention. Recurrence of pleural effusion can be prevented by adequate treatment of the primary cause (e.g., heart failure, malignancy, or cirrhosis). Pleurodesis aims to definitively prevent reaccumulation of effusions.
