Uses And Benefits
Isoniazid is most frequently prescribed to treat active tuberculosis. It is almost always used in combination with other medications to prevent the development of treatment-resistant tuberculosis. In some cases, this medication is given to patients who have had a positive TB skin test. This is done in an effort to prevent tuberculosis. Evidence suggests that this antibiotic may be effective in the treatment of meningitis and genito-urinary disease.
As an antibiotic, this medicine is an effective treatment for many bacterial infections. Of course, like others, it will not treat viral infections. Patients need to take the entire course of medication that has been prescribed. This ensures that they receive the maximum benefits.
