Hello Monica,

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol are antibiotics used in the treatment of tuberculosis for category 1. The workings of each drug are:

  Rifampicin works by inhibiting bacterial RNA transcription. Isoniazid works by inhibiting the formation of mycolic acid which is an important cell wall component in bacteria. Pirazinamide works by inhibiting bacterial fatty acid synthesis. Ethambutol works by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. UV rays on the sun are said to also be able to eliminate bacteria by activating the body's natural immune system through vitamin D contained in sunlight.

Every drug in the treatment of TB certainly has side effects, if side effects occur you should consult a doctor for further treatment.

That's all, hope it helps.
