good night, I want to ask if the drug isoniazid is given to people who suffer from TB only or can be given to other sufferers caused by bacteria?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Isoniazid is an antituberculosis antibiotic that works to kill the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria that causes tuberculosis infection. This drug specifically works by inhibiting the synthesis of mycolic acid, a component for the formation of germ cell walls of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. So this drug is only indicated for the treatment of tuberculosis infections, in other words not for other types of bacterial infections.

Every use of drugs, especially antibiotics, is highly recommended by doctor's prescription, because each antibiotic has a different mechanism of action for specific types of germs. Free consumption of antibiotics will increase the risk of resistance or germ resistance to standard drugs. Take medication according to clear medical indications from the examination and on direct prescription by a doctor.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
