Hi!

Even if a woman is pregnant, tuberculosis has to be treated. The usual treatment is Ethambutol, Rifampicin, Isoniazid. Vit B6 or pyridoxine should be taken as long as INH is being taken. Pyrazinamide should be avoided as far as possible as the drug’s capacity to cause fetal defects is not well known. Para-aminosalicyclin (PAS) may be given if a pregnant woman can tolerate it.
Other antibiotics used for the treatment of tuberculosis that should be avoided in pregnancy are amikacin, kanamycin, clofazimine cycloserine, capreomycin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin, sparfloxacin, and ethionamide.

Myrin-p forte 3  which your friend is taking contains pyrazinamide. It would be better if she takes only Ethambutol, Rifampicin, Isoniazid. She should discuss this with her treating doctor. Take care!
