Our expert says:
When a TB patient starts taking their TB medication, they become non-infectious within the first week or two, as long as they take their medication regularly. The best way to treat a TB patient is to have someone to give his medication daily AND check that he takes his medication every day to prevent resistant TB developing. They need to eat enough and healthy food to be able to build up their strength. You should try to get someone to check that he takes his medication and to ensure that he eats at least one well balanced meal per day.
