Things You Must Know About Tuberculosis and its Medicines
Tuberculosis or TB is quite a serious infectious disease that primarily affects the lungs. It is a highly contagious disease that can spread from person to person through tiny droplets released into the air via coughs and sneezes.
Ever since 1985, tuberculosis infections began increasing in developed countries along with the developing ones. The advent of HIV causing AIDS can be held responsible for this scenario, to some extent.
Many tuberculosis strains have the capacity to resist tuberculosis medicines, which are mostly antibiotics.
People with active tuberculosis might be requiring multiple types of medications, and that too for quite a considerable period, in order to get completely rid of the infection and also prevent antibiotic resistance.
Names of the most common set of Tuberculosis medicines used to treat tuberculosis:
- Rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane)
- Ethambutol (Myambutol)
Important Drug-resistant Tuberculosis Medicines
- People with drug-resistant TB would require a combination of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones and injectable medications, such as amikacin or capreomycin (Capastat), which are generally used for a span of 20 to 30 months. Still, some types of TB are developing resistance to these medications as well.
- In such cases, some drugs like Bedaquiline (Sirturo) and Linezolid (Zyvox), might be added to the therapy in order to counter drug resistance.
- A new drug named Pretomanid is suggested to be used in addition to Bedaquiline and Linezolid.
