pulmonary tuberculosis to cure it you have to take the medications for 6 months which include rifamcyin,ethambutol,pyzinamide.

Multi Drug Resistance tuberculosis.(MDR-TB)

if you don’t take the medication or stop it or your immune system is too weak. it can become resistant to first line of antibiotics which would result in treatment upto extra 24months.

then the second line of antibiotic drugs are prescribed by the physician which include injections upto 6 months .

and complete course of tablets for 2 years.

also if you don’t take medications properly it can then convert into XDR or TDR.

In that case you are doomed my friend.
