Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Tuberculosis

Making notes before your visit, as well as taking along a trusted family member or friend, can help you through the first appointment with your doctor.

  • How do I know if I have TB?
  • How serious is my diagnosis?
  • How long will I be contagious and how can I protect my friends and family?
  • What medications should I be taking and are there side effects I need to be aware of?
  • How can I reduce my likelihood of contracting the disease? What is putting me at risk?
