Combutol 600 mg Tablet contains ethambutol. Combutol 600mg Tablet is generally given as a combination medicine along with other anti-tuberculosis medicines. The dose and duration of Combutol 600 mg Tablet are advised based on the bodyweight of the patient. Combutol 600 mg Tablet can be taken with or without food. For optimal pharmacological effects, it should be taken preferably at the same time daily. Once started, the course of Combutol 600 mg Tablet should be completed without any break to avoid treatment failure and the development of medicine-resistant tuberculosis, which could be difficult to treat. Inform your doctor about any pre-existing conditions you may have, like diabetes, eye disorders (like diabetic retinopathy, optic neuritis, cataracts), kidney disease or liver disease. Combutol 600 mg Tablet can decrease blood sugar levels. So, regular monitoring of blood sugar levels is required.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can I stop using the Combutol 600 mg Tablet whenever I want?

A: No, you should not stop the treatment with Combutol 600 mg Tablet unless advised by your doctor. It is important that you complete the full course of Combutol 600 mg Tablet as suggested by your doctor. Stopping the tablet abruptly can lead to return of infection or can make the severity worsen.

Q: Should I take another Combutol 600 mg Tablet if I vomited after taking the tablet?

A: It depends on the time that has passed by after taking the tablet. If the episode of vomit was after 30 minutes or more of taking the Combutol 600 mg Tablet, you can skip taking a repeat dose. But, if the vomit occurred within 30 minutes of taking the medicine, you should take another dose of Combutol 600 mg Tablet.

Q: Is it necessary that I take so many tablets as part of the treatment for TB? Can taking only a Combutol 600 mg Tablet will be sufficient?
