Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Rifafour is a 4 drug combination pill to treat tuberculosis. The pill is available in different strengths, noted by the dose of the "e" component, ethambutol. Dosing is based on weight. If your not sure what your correct dose is, it's good to confirm with your health care provider.

I hope that helps, BY
