    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 was exposed to tb through work and tested positive. I have to take once a day with B6 vitamin, and I don't have any side effects. I'm on month 4 of 9 and have had bloodwork once, which was fine. The problem I have is I can't eat cheese, almost all dairy, raisins, bananas, a lot of meats, can't drink alcohol and I can't take tylenol! That is hard to deal with since I have 2 ...
