Forecox Kit Description

Forecox Kit contains Tablets that are used for the treatment of tuberculosis or TB infection. It is composed of four active ingredients: isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide. All are a

nti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) medicine. They each help kill the bacteria in various ways. It is essential not to stop using this medicine in the middle of the treatment, even if you feel better. Tuberculosis is a very contagious bacterial infection that affects the lungs. TB bacteria die very slowly, and it quickly develops resistance to anti-tuberculosis medicines. Hence, different combinations of anti-TB medications are used to kill them. The Forecox Tablet has four different anti-TB medicines. Doctors usually prescribe to take them for at least 6 to 9 months. The treatment duration depends on various aspects, which the doctors will assess and decide on a treatment plan. Continue the treatment for the entire course without stopping. Or else, the infection might come back, and it would get even harder to treat.
