Comment:
My 1 year old has recently started this drug due to a positive skin test, but negative chest xray. First, I hate that it is a 9 month treatment. Second, trying to give a little one practically a full syringe full of this stuff is extremely difficult, and a sticky mess when it gets spit back out at me. I am extremely concerned with all the side affects that comes with this medication. Although ... Show Full Comment

Like others, I only starred to post a comment. Thank you all very much for your helpful input. I have been told to take this drug and I feel very strongly that it's not something I want to subject myself to. I've had pneumonia and not developed TB. Maybe I was just lucky but I'll stick with chest x-rays as long as I can rather than go on this drug. Thanks again.

I have been on isoniazid for 8 1/2 months of a 9 month treatment. I had a positive skin test and clear x-ray. The monthly doctor visits and blood tests are inconvenient but not too bad. I was nauseated after taking the pill the first month, but that went away. I had some numbness in my fingers when I forgot to take the B6 that I was also supposed to be taking daily. The B6 alleviated the num ... Show Full Comment
