How Afb 4 Kit works

Afb 4 Kit is a combination of four medicines: Isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide which treat tuberculosis. Isoniazid works by preventing the TB bacteria from forming their own protective covering, while rifampicin inactivates a bacterial enzyme (RNA-polymerase) which is required by TB bacteria to make essential proteins and to reproduce. Together, they kill the bacteria and eradicate the infection. Ethambutol and pyrazinamide on the other hand, work by slowing the growth of these bacteria.

विशेषज्ञ की सलाह

  • You have been prescribed Afb 4 Kit for the treatment of tuberculosis.
  • Take it on an empty stomach and preferably at the same time everyday.
  • Try not to forget a dose, as this increases the risk of the bacteria becoming resistant to the medicine, and also increases the risk of getting side effects.
  • It may discolour your urine, sweat, saliva and tears a reddish/orange colour. This is normal and not harmful.
  • Your doctor may check your liver function before starting treatment and regularly thereafter. Inform your doctor if you notice yellowing of eyes or skin, dark urine, or stomach pain.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Afb 4 Kit as this may increase the risk of side effects on the liver.
  • It may cause vitamin B6 deficiency. Your doctor may prescribe vitamin B6 supplements to help avoid potential problems associated with its deficiency, such as inflammation of the nerves (neuritis).
  • Use a reliable contraceptive method (such as condoms or a diaphragm) to prevent pregnancy while you are taking Afb 4 Kit as it may make hormonal contraceptives such as the pill less effective.
  • Do not take indigestion remedies (antacids) within at least two hours of taking Afb 4 Kit.
  • Finish the full course of the medication, even if you feel better. Stopping the course early increases the risk of coming back of the infection.
