Hi there
Usually, the treatment for miliary TB is a bit longer than for pulmonary TB (Tb of the lungs). The treatment is usually 9 months. You can have an X ray and sputum test to see if the TB has improved. Good luck and please continue to take your TB treatment until the course is finished, and well done for taking it already for 6 months. Good luck and stay safe.
