    I took this medication five years ago from inactive tb. My doctor put me on the 9 month treatment, it made me feel very lethargic, prone to headaches and vomiting. My advice to others is to take a B complex and B12 vitamin everyday with your meds. The medication has toxicity and depletes your body of these vitamins. If you take the supplements, it will help with your side effects. Best luck!

    10 weeks in: I don't feel good. Stomach hurts, intestinal tract is always aching, and hate it. Scared what it will do after reading reviews. If I quit, does that mean I will be more likely to go to active tuberculosis?
