    I have been taking Isoniazaid for 4 mounths, i havent had any major problems, first month i noticed tingling, but it went away after 2 days.

    I have 2 more days of a six month regimen of isoniazid. Blurry vision at times not severe enough to discontinue, tolerable. There is no way to judge whether this will prevent me from TB but the evidence is there it will reduce my chances. I tested positive for TB with a clear chest X-ray.

The end of the third week I started getting sick. Muscle aches, headaches, a feeling of knot in my stomach, and I was very tired. This started on a Sunday and got worse through the week. By Tuesday ni ... Show Full Comment
