Sorry, this isn't available in the U.S. and other countries do not regulate their drugs as strictly, so I am unable to find any information on it.

I suggest you ask your doctor or pharmacist for more info.

Hi. I was diagnosed to fave a mild TB after doing my chest xray. However, I have hepa B & fatty liver but my Pulmonologist prescribed for me to take 4 tabs of Fixcom 4 daily. She likewise adviced me if I noticed yellowish in my eyes, I would discontinue taking Fixcom 4 & report back to my her. Is it safe taking Fixcom 4 considering I have Hepa B & Fatty Liver? Or do I have to consult my Gastroenterologist first before taking Fixcom 4?

steve Says:

i was hospitalized a week ago because of chills, extreme night sweating, and mild fever, the doctor thought it was swine flu (though I was thinking of asthma) so they confined me at the hospital. After a series of lab tests, including x ray and sputum test, I was diagnosed of PTB. The x ray revealed a TB spot on the upper portion of my left lung, the sputum test came out to be negative, but the doctor told me to start medications. Just this morning, I went to the pharmacy to buy FIXCOM 4, I drank three tabs, and ate my breakfast right away. Just now, while am browsing over the web, I found out that the tablets should be taken with an empty stomach. Im quite confused and somehow worried right now. You see, am also under medication for hyperthyroidism, am extremely worried about the side effects. Kindly help me get through this. Thanks

I was diagnosed to have TB and currently taking fixcom 4 for already a month. I was advised to take four (4) tabs daily for 2 months therapy and 4 months maintenance.
