Hi there!

R-Cinex is a combination of rifampcin and INH, Combutol is Ethambutol, Lenoflox is Levofloxacon, these are antibiotics and Benadon is pyridoxine which is a vitamin used to counteract the effects of INH. The listed antibiotics have a long list of side effects. You could get the complete list of side effects online, while it is only the important side effects that one would need to be careful about. In case one develops any, it is advised to inform the treating doctor immediately.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
