My brother is in 4th month of tb treatment and continuing with r-cinex 600/300 and combutol 1200 mg. He is getting joint pains now especially in around ankle and feet, hip area and wrist. His uric acid level also gone high he had blood test done in january. Do you think its because of tb medication? Is combutol giving him joint pains? What shall he do, now?
