I have been taking Isoniazid for just a week. I am experiencing hip and leg pain which is extremely painful and dibilitating. Has anyone else experienced this and how long will it last. Also should I contact my hospital doctor?
I have been taking Isoniazid for about a week, and I am already bloating up. Does anyone know why the weight gain. Besides the bloating and swelling, I am experiencing several more side affects. I have to take this for nine months. Don't think I am going to make it.
