About R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's

R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's belongs to the group of medicines called anti-tuberculosis drugs primarily used to treat and prevent tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that mainly affects the lungs, but it can also spread to other body parts such as kidneys, brain, spine, and bone marrow.

R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's is a combination of two anti-tuberculosis drugs, namely: Rifampicin, and Isoniazid. Rifampicin works by inactivating a bacterial RNA-polymerase) an enzyme that allows TB bacteria to make and replicate essential proteins. Isoniazid prevents the creation of its own protective coating by these bacteria. Together, they destroy the bacteria named Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes TB (tuberculosis)., and the infection is eliminated.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Do not stop taking R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's despite symptomatic relief. To treat your condition effectually, continue taking R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's for as long as it has been prescribed for you. Avoid foods and drinks containing histamine or tyramine such as cured meat, matured cheese, soya, tuna, salmon, mackerel, wine, and beer while taking R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's as they might cause interaction. Maintain a gap of one hour between R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's and antacid medicines. Consult your doctor before taking R-Cinex 600 Tablet 3's if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy.
