How Rifa I-6 Tablet works

Rifa I-6 Kid Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Isoniazid, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and rifampicin. Isoniazid prevents the TB bacteria from forming their own protective covering, while rifampicin works by inactivating a bacterial enzyme (RNA-polymerase) which is required by these bacteria to make essential proteins and to reproduce. Together, they kill the bacteria and eradicate the infection. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is added to prevent nerve damage which may be a side effect of isoniazid.
