I had a problem of pericardial effusion. The fluid was non-tappable. Doctor prescribed me anti-tubercular treatment. After about nine months on ATT(anti-tubercular medicines) there was no pericardial fluid seen in ECHO. But after exactly one year of medicine course I stopped taking anti- tubercular medicines as advised by my physician. I again had an ECHO after 10-15 days and the report found small accumulation of fluid anterior of RV. What should I do now??

Both myself and my daughter have had issues with pericarditis with effusion. We both are treated with indomethacin at onset of reoccurrence. Episodes now last only a few days and neither one of us has a had an occurrence in several months. Indomethacin has been the only drug that has helped.
