There are different types of TB infections that people may get afflicted with. For this type of TB infection, there is a need for people to undergo letter A. They have to take Isoniazid for about 9 months. This is a type of tuberculosis that is not considered to be active. This means that it is not contagious but it can stay in the system for months.

It is important for doctors to be sure and diagnose this condition so that it can be controlled. If this would not be given proper treatment, it will lead to a full-blown case of tuberculosis. While taking the proper medications for this, drinking alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
