Frequently asked questions about Pyz Tablet
Pyz is an antibiotic. It is used in combination with other antibiotics in the treatment of tuberculosis
Pyz 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
Pyz kills or stops growth of bacteria that causes tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis). The exact mechanism of action for Pyz is not known
