Montaux test frequency

How frequently can I get a Montaux test done? What should be the gap ideally be between two tests? Is it OK if I repeat it after one and a half months?

Hello. It requires minimum of 6 months mediccation, if you had an episode of TB. In case you were on multi drug therapy, your doctor will tell you the interval. In case this is for a screening, the duration may be once every 3 or 4 years as per US standards if you have a chance of contracting TB.
