Hello Doctor, I have a pus collection in my chest . My chest specialist suggested that it should be TB and I start taking the drugs Combutol 1000mg, RCinex 600, Pyzina 1500mg, also taking Streptomycin injection 0.75g daily. I have been taking them for the past 2 weeks and the pus collection has reduced drastically. My body weight is 80kg, age is 27 and male. Is the prescription correct ?.
