Rifampicin Capsules

Rifampicin Capsules are a rifamycin antibiotic indicated for tuberculosis, leprosy, and legionnaires disease. AdvaCare Pharma produces these capsules in its ISO and GMP-approved facilities.



What is Rifampicin?

Therapeutic Class:

Active Ingredients: Rifampicin

Rifampicin Capsules are an antibiotic drug used to treat latent and active tuberculosis disease (TB) and other mycobacterial infections like leprosy and legionnaires disease. This medicine is also used as a combination therapy with fusidic acid against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Rifampicin is also indicated to treat meningitis in people who carry the bacteria but are not sick with the disease. Due to its antifungal properties, it may also be used to treat histoplasmosis.

Rifampicin (Rifampin) is classified as a rifamycin with antitubercular and leprostatic properties. It is a semi-synthetic, broad-spectrum macrocyclic antibiotic. The active ingredient works by inhibiting DNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity in most gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is typically used against specifically Mycobacterium tuberculosis due to the emergence of resistant bacteria.
