User avatar Hello -

I've tried to find "monto 4" in all my reference sources and come up empty-handed. If this is a name for the four-drug combination treatment for TB that is commonly prescribed, please let me know, and I can tell you what you specifically would like to know regarding side effects. I'm not sure from your post whether or not you are attributing your lack of eating to diminished appetite, working long hours, or something else.

Please fill us in and we'll do what we can to help you out with this. Thanks in advance.
