Frequently asked questions for Pyrazinamide

Macrozide is an antibiotic. It is used in combination with other antibiotics in the treatment of tuberculosis
Macrozide is both a bacteriostatic and a bactericidal antibiotic. It stops the growth of bacteria (bacteriostatic) in certain cases and kills (bactericidal) the tuberculosis causing bacteria in other cases
Macrozide kills or stops growth of bacteria that causes tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis). The exact mechanism of action for Macrozide is not known
Following oral intake of Macrozide, it gets converted in the body to pyrazinoic acid (active chemical form of Macrozide). Pyrazinoic acid blocks the excretion of urates (salt form of uric acid) by the kidneys. This causes an increase in blood levels of uric acid (hyperuricemia). Excess uric acid accumulation between joints causes pain, swelling, redness and stiffness in joints (gout).
