Did anyone have high blood pressure from the TB medication - Rifinah?
My mom is 63 and she has been taking high blood pressure medicine for over 5 years. She has been diagnosed with latent TB and was given Rifinah + B Vitamin. She has been taking them for nearly 2 weeks, but now her blood pressure is getting high even with the Medicine (180/70) and eventually drops to 160/70, but it is still very high considering she is taking medication for it twice a day. Before starting with Rifinah , the blood pressure was below 140 (130, 120).
I have told her to stop with the antibiotics until Monday when we can speak to the TB nurse)
I am really worried as the high blood pressure is really serious, but also hope that stoping the TB medicine for a couple of days won't give her other side effects.
