It is very important to take all your TB medicine, even if you have to take it for a long time

What does this mean?

If you are being treated for the first time for TB, your treatment will last for six months.

If you are being treated for the second time for TB, your treatment will last for eight months.

This may seem like a long time, but to be cured from TB you must take the TB treatment for the right amount of time.

What should i do?

Take all of your TB medication. Do not stop taking your TB medication.

Ask your health care worker or doctor for help.
