Solonex Dt 100 MG Description

Solonex DT is an antibiotic used to treat tuberculosis. It is chemically composed of isoniazid or an isonicotinic acid hydrazide, an anti-tubercular medicine (treats tuberculosis infection). Fast mul

tiplying tuberculosis bacteria are rapidly killed, but the medicine only inhibits quiescent ones. It kills both extracellular and intracellular tuberculosis bacteria. Solonex DT is an essential component of all Tuberculosis treatment regimens. The medicine has to be taken orally on an empty stomach. The dose and the duration of the medicine have to be prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any dose and complete the entire course of treatment as advised. Skipping doses or not completing the course might render the medicine ineffective in treating future infections. Common side effects are peripheral neuropathy (tingling and numbness of palms and soles) and liver damage. If you develop a severe allergic reaction, stop the medicine immediately and consult your doctor. Liver function has to be assessed regularly while on this medicine. The doctor might prescribe you vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) along with Solonex DT to prevent tingling and numbness.

precautionsAndWarnings

Precautions and Warnings of Solonex Dt 100 MG

pregnancy

Pregnancy

Q:
Can I take Solonex DT during pregnancy?
A:
Solonex DT is used cautiously in pregnancy to treat active tuberculosis infection. The medicine crosses the placenta (a pathway between the mother and the growing baby), and hence the newborn should be closely monitored for side effects if the mother has been prescribed the same. However, preventive treatment for tuberculosis should only be started after the female delivers to avoid the risk of exposure to the developing baby. There are no adequate studies and research about the effects of the medicine in pregnant females. Consult your doctor if you’re pregnant before starting the medicine.
breastfeeding

Breast Feeding

Q:
Can I take Solonex DT while breastfeeding?
A:
Nursing mothers can continue to breastfeed while on Solonex DT. Studies suggest that it gets excreted in breast milk in small quantities and does not produce any harmful effects in the newborn. The doctor should be informed if you are a nursing mother before starting it.
driving

Driving

Q:
Can I drive if I have taken Solonex DT?
A:
Solonex Dt can affect your driving ability; avoid driving if you are experiencing dizziness or visual difficulties.
alcohol

Alcohol

Q:
Can I consume Solonex DT with alcohol?
A:
Alcohol should not be consumed if you are on Solonex DT. The use of alcohol and Solonex DT increases the risk of liver damage. Consult your doctor for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: I have been recently diagnosed as suffering from Tuberculosis infection; my physician has prescribed Solonex DT for the same. What are the possible long term side effects and warning signs of tablet?

A: Solonex DT is an anti-tubercular medicine. Tuberculosis is an infection of the lung caused by bacteria called mycobacterium tuberculosis. Medicine forms an essential component of all tuberculosis treatment regimens. It treats both active and latent tuberculosis infections. Your doctor can only start it. The possible long term side effects are tingling and numbness of hands and feet, jaundice, nausea and vomiting. If you develop fits(seizures) or visual disturbances, or rashes with swelling of the face, stop the medicine immediately and consult your doctor.

Q: I have been taking Solonex DT as prescribed for two months now. Can I stop the medicine as I have been noticing the yellowing of my eyes?

A: Yellowing of your eyes is probably due to jaundice which is a side effect of this medicine. The medicine should be continued for the duration prescribed by your doctor to prevent the development of resistance (Tuberculosis infection becomes difficult to treat in the future if the entire course of medicine is not completed). Jaundice, loss of appetite and tingling sensation of palms and soles are some of the common side effects of this medicine which should not let you stop the medicine. Consult your doctor for more information and evaluation of jaundice.

Q: My fourteen-year-old child recently got evaluated for cough and fever at a nearby DOTS centre. He received a BCG vaccination at the time of birth. Tests and chest X-Ray were suggestive of tuberculosis infection. The doctor has started him on Solonex DT along with other medicines.

A: If the sputum(cough) tests and chest X-ray are suggestive of tuberculosis infection as diagnosed by the doctor, the child needs to be started on anti-tubercular medicine immediately. It is possible that an individual can develop tuberculosis despite vaccination. Solonex DT is one of the constituents of all regimens against tuberculosis infection. Consult your doctor for more information.
