A
Bedaquiline is a newer, highly effective anti-TB drug that does not accelerate the metabolism of HIV drugs and is sued for multi-drug resistant TB. Capreomycin is a second-line drug used for drug-resistant TB, but is not as effective as bedaquiline. Ethionamide is a second-line drug that is less well tolerated of all anti-TB agents and is used only when there is no alternative. Pyridoxine is given to prevent peripheral neuritis in patients taking isoniazid.
