If the question is for me, I started the azithromycin at the same time that I started ethambutol and rifampin. I thought that was the Big 3 but I had nothing to compare it to! I see the Big 3 could be with Clarithromycin instead?
Whatever is right, I seem to be tolerating them and I’m hoping it works!

Yes that is correct. They are interchangeable if you can’t tolerate clarithromycin, the azithromycin is the alternative. I have always been told you have to take all three – not one for a length of time and then another. (Vanderbilt in Nashville)
