Tuberculosis patients are now routinely given two different antibiotics at the same time. Why might this approach be more effective that administering a different antibiotic only after bacteria develop resistance to the first?
Is it because infections rapidly adapt through mutations?

You not on the wrong track with the mutation idea but there might be other idea that could be suitable.
How long does TB take to grow in a host? Is it actively growing in a host? How would grow rate impact the efficacity of an antibiotic?
