What is Isoniazid used for?

Isoniazid tablets 100mg are used to treat pulmonary tuberculosis, which is an infection of the lungs with the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  Tuberculosis usually only affects the lungs but can spread to other parts of the body (extrapulmonary), including the kidneys, spine and brain.  Often there are no symptoms and this form of the disease is known as latent tuberculosis, which is kept under control by the immune system and is not contagious.  However, if the disease progresses to the active form it can become serious and even life-threatening.  Active tuberculosis is highly contagious and spreads through droplets from coughing and sneezing.  Symptoms include chronic cough, blood in the sputum, chest pain, fatigue, fever, night sweats, chills, loss of appetite and weight loss.  Risk factors for tuberculosis include immunocompromised condition like HIV/AIDS, smoking, lung disease, malnutrition, overcrowding, alcoholism, diabetes and some medications like corticosteroids.  Isoniazid tablets 100mg can be used alone for latent tuberculosis to prevent the progression to active disease, but for active tuberculosis is used in combination with other antitubercular agents such as rifampicin.  Isoniazid tablets 100mg are also effective for treatment of extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
