Pyrazinamide is used in combination with other medications to treat tuberculosis (TB). It is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria, specifically Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections and will not work for viral infections such as the common cold or flu. Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to be ineffective for future infections.


  • Take Pyrazinamide exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, typically once daily or twice weekly, with or without food.
  • Take the medication at evenly spaced times. If daily, take it at the same time each day. If weekly, take it on the same days and at the same time each week. Mark a calendar to help you remember.
  • Continue taking Pyrazinamide (and all other TB medications) for the full prescribed duration, even if you feel better. Stopping early or skipping doses can worsen the infection or make it resistant to treatment.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your TB symptoms persist or worsen.


  • Don't adjust your Pyrazinamide dosage or stop taking it without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • There are no specific foods or drinks to avoid while taking Pyrazinamide, but discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider.
