Minor side effects, such as gastrointestinal intolerance, mild skin rash, pruritus or flushing are best managed by reassurance and symptomatic treatment and the patient should be encouraged to continue anti tuberculosis treatment.

Treatment with non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAID)provide symptomatic relief of pyrazinamide related arthralgia. Skin rashescan usually be managed bywithholding the causative drug and if it is really necessary to reintroduce the drug, the patient should undergo desensitization.



Patients who develop jaundice or other signs of liver dysfunction during therapy should have treatment stopped immediately. Although many patients with drug-induced hepatotoxicity can be successfully rechallenged, this is best done in a where liver function can be carefully monitored.

indications for stoping the hepatotoxic anti tuberculosis drugs
Indications for stoping the hepatotoxic anti-tuberculosis drugs

If the period without drugs is likely to be prolonged, and the patient requires treatment, at least two other drugs should be given until it is determined whether the offending drug can be resumed.
