How is TB disease treated?
TB disease can almost always be cured with medicine. But the medicine must be taken as the doctor or nurse tells you.

If you have TB disease, you will need to take several different drugs. Taking several drugs will do a better job of killing all of the bacteria and preventing them from becoming resistant to the drugs.
