tb rx
Jul 28, 2011

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.
