Full information about Rifadin

General Information on Rifadin

Rifadin is an antibiotic. It prevents bacteria from spreading in your body. Its generic name is Rifampin. It is used to treat and prevent tuberculosis. Rifadin may also be used to eliminate bacteria from your nose or throat which could cause meningitis, even if you don’t have it.

Rifadin helps in preventing the bacteria that cause tuberculosis to spread in your body, but it will not directly treat the infection. It targets RNA-polymerase, which is a bacterial enzyme. The bacteria use this enzyme to create proteins and copy their DNA. Without this enzyme they cannot reproduce and they eventually die. Rifadin is administered as syrups, capsules and intravenous infusion. It comes in two strengths- Rifadin 300mg and Rifadin 150 mg.

Rifadin can make birth control pills less effective. Before you buy Rifadin, consult your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs or have liver disease.
