You mean your sgot/sgpt and s. Bilirubin was high even before starting TB drugs. TB drugs are hepato toxic and need close monitoring of liver function if patient is put on TB drugs. Also 4 TB drugs are to be taken for 2 months as intensive phase and then can be reduced to 3 drugs for 4 months ommiting pyzina. In some cases 4 drugs can be given for 3 months if indicated. You can step down to 3 drugs now.
