Inactive TB Treatment
I know this is not commonly heard of anymore but thought I would ask! Is anyone dealing with the issue of inactive TB? If so what meds were you prescribed? I have had this for 30+ years and now, all of a sudden, they want me to take a medication for 6 months! The problem is the side effects of Isoniazid! It is deemed to cause peripheral neuropathy, just one side effect, and I already deal with it and don't need something to worsen what is already a serious problem. There are other issues with this drug and at my age I don't need to deal with these things. I don't like to fight City Hall (PCP) so I am puzzled on what to do. For over 30 years no one has said anything about my positive skin test since I always have a negative chest x ray! No I don't want to get TB! Words of advice would be most helpful.
