is it safe to carry on working with tb rx
Response from Dr. McGowan
People on TB treatment can return to work once they are deemed to be non-infectious. This is usally after at least 2 weeks on treatment or once a sputum test turns to negative. Tb can affect other organs but mainly involves the lungs and that is were the risk of spread arises. A person is most contagious before diagnosis when they are on no treatment. You must go for your regular checkups on TB meds to monitor the liver function.
