Hello, I went through your query, pirmary drugs for TB include rifampicin, isoniazid (macox plus as both of this), ethambutaol (combutol), and pyrazinamid, but your doctor as given levofloxacin instead of it,,, please talk to your doctor regarding this,, complete course has 2 months intensive phase and 4months continues phase, so total 6months,,, important is not skipping even a single dose. Please have regular follow up with your doctor.
