I forgot one of the important issues.  With the TB medicine, I cannot take Tylenol.  Since I am flaring, does anyone know of anything else that I can take?  I was told no Motrin.  Seriously, I can't go 2 months, trying to "wing" it.  I am in a lot more pain than I care to be.  Thanks everyone

if your test was positive the county or state should be giving your FREE meds to help to keep it inactive. check with your dr.

Hi I thought your Dr. called you in a perscription for something for discomfort. I don't know about it as far as taking meds what did he perscribe for the TB treatment? lol gail

Hi Gail..  It isn't funny to me since I am in the middle of a flare and vomit now and/or then, plus can't eat because of the cramps.  My doctor gave me Dicyclomine for abdominal pain.  Isoniazid for Latent TB.  Basically told me to call him aftet two months of TB med's.  I can't imagine making it that long because I am in alot of pain.  I am 5"8 and down to 127.  No big deal to most people but it is to me.
