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

His pediatrician prescribed a 9 mo. treatment with this med., and so far, thank God, no bad side effects. She is monitoring his white cell count and liver enzymes through regular blood tests. My doctor, however, ad ... Show Full Comment
