Isoniazid therapy may need to be continued for up to 9 months. Your doctor will decide that.

It is extremely important to take dose as directed. Take all of the isoniazid that has been prescribed for you even if you begin to feel better. Your symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated. It is important to take isoniazid regularly to get the most benefit.

Tuberculosis is a highly contagious bacterial disease that primarily involves the lungs. Tuberculosis may develop after inhaling infected droplets sprayed into the air from a cough or sneeze of someone infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
