Pyrazinamide Drug Information | Pyrazine amide

Pyrazinamide is used to treat tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that mainly affects the lungs but can affect other parts of the body as well. This infection can be treated with a 6-month course of medication. Several drugs must be used to treat tuberculosis. Pyrazinamide is just one of these drugs.

Pyrosinamide is usually given as a combination of two, three, or four pills. These brands are called Rifater (pyrosinamide, isoniazid with rifampin) and Voractive (isoniazid with rifampin, pyrazinamide and ethambutol). Each of these brands may be prescribed at different stages of the disease. The use of combination drugs reduces the frequency of drug use. Sometimes only pyrosine amide, brand name Zinamide, is prescribed to treat tuberculosis.
