Akt 4 Side Effects - Itches & Rashes


My mother is suffering from tubercolosis in waist. She has been advised to take AKT 4 and R Cine 150. Ever since she started taking the dose she is experiencing itches and rashes in the whole body. This increases to an extent where she is scared of taking the medicine. Please sugggest whether it is a side effect of the medicine or something else.

Actually, there's a good chance that it may be an allergic reaction to one of the active ingredients.

It can be a fairly common occurrence with some antibiotics.

What does the rash look like? How long does it last?

She may need to revisit her doctor to determine what's causing it, so they can have her try something else.

Hi, Stop the Medication for a week and Skip the Capsule (rifampicin which is the Tablet which causes Itching and hence rashes) and your mother should be alright.

Is your mother OK now??
I am facing TB from last 1 year.
Inside my neck around blood vessel
and at 3-4 places in spine(backbone).
My hand and legs had stopped working.

I am eating akt4 for last 10months.
Now one doctors says to stop akt4 and change the medicine and increase the dosage as my body weight has increased.

While another doctor says
To switch to akt3
Because one medicine in akt4 should not be taken more than 3 months.

Now I don't understand
What to do..
Because these medicine damages eye sight,
So I am afraid of making any changes.

Please suggest and share your knowledge
