What is the treatment for tuberculosis?
People with active TB disease must complete the prescribed course of medicine, which usually involves taking isoniazid (INH) for 6 to 12 months. TB infection is treated with isoniazid alone; treatment of TB disease usually requires three or more drugs. The exact medication plan must be determined by the physician.
