Mycocox E Tablet Description

Mycocox E Tablets are used in the treatment of tuberculosis (or TB infection), a very contagious bacterial infection that affects the lungs. The active ingredients in Mycocox E tablets are Isoniazid,

Rifampicin, and Ethambutol. All three are anti-tuberculosis medications. This medicine works by killing the bacteria in various ways and lowering infection. Directions for use of Mycocox E tablets should strictly be followed. This medicine may be prescribed for a few months at least. Tuberculosis bacteria die very slowly; hence the treatment is so long. It can also quickly develop resistance to anti-tuberculosis medicines. The treatment duration depends on various factors, such as the affected person's overall health. Before prescribing, doctors will perform an exam and decide on a treatment plan. Do not stop using Mycocox E tablets mid-treatment under any condition, even if you feel better. This might cause the infection to return more severely and be harder to treat. Side effects of Mycocox E tablets include Vitamin B6 deficiency. This medicine may also change the colour of the tears, saliva, etc., to orange, which is not harmful or permanent.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can I use antacid medicines while using Mycocox E tablets?

A: It is not recommended to take Mycocox E tablets and antacids at the same time. Do not take antacids within two hours of taking a Mycocox E tablet. Consult your doctor if you have a persistent stomach upset or other stomach problems.

Q: Should I stop using Mycocox E tablets if I am feeling better?

A: Tuberculosis bacteria die very slowly, and it takes a long time to eliminate them. Do not stop using Mycocox E tablets any time in the middle of the treatment schedule, even if you think you are feeling better. If you stop in the middle, the bacteria will multiply again and may gain resistance to the current treatment. This causes reinfection and makes it even harder to kill the bacteria.

Q: Can I wear contact lenses while using Mycocox E tablets?

A: It is not advisable to wear contact lenses while on this treatment. Mycocox E tablets can change the colour of eyes, urine, etc., to orange. This colour change is not harmful but can permanently change the colour of your contact lenses.
