Terizidone is a bacteriostatic antibiotic with a wide spectrum of action.
Terisidone is active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium avium, as well as Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. To this preparation are also sensitive Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter, Enterobacter, Morgahella morganii, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Cases of development of secondary resistance are rare.There is no cross-resistance between terizidone and other anti-tuberculosis drugs.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride

Vitamin product.
Participates in the metabolism. It is necessary for the normal functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Has a neuroprotective effect.


After oral administration, the drug is almost completely absorbed from the digestive tract (70-90%).
C max in plasma is achieved after 2-3 hours. Food intake does not affect the rate of absorption. The level of the minimum effective concentration for mycobacteria tuberculosis is 10-40 mg / l, for staphylococci 8-32 mg / l, for gram-negative bacteria having a clinical value of 20-250 mg / l. T 1/2 - 21 hours.
It spreads in tissues and body fluids, lungs, bile, ascitic fluid, pleural effusion and synovial fluid, lymph and sputum.

It penetrates well into the cerebrospinal fluid (80-100%) of the concentration in the serum, a higher concentration in the CSF is created by inflammatory changes in the meninges.

In the body, terizidone is metabolized insignificantly.
From 60 to 70% of the drug is excreted by the kidneys unchanged; a small amount is excreted through the intestine and a small part in the form of metabolites.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride

After taking the drug quickly absorbed throughout the small intestine, a greater amount is absorbed in the jejunum.
Metabolized in the liver with the formation of pharmacologically active metabolites (pyridoxal phosphate and pyridoxamine phosphate). Pyridoxal phosphate with plasma proteins binds to 90%.
It penetrates well into all tissues;
accumulates mainly in the liver, less in the muscles and the central nervous system. Penetrates through the placenta, with breast milk.T 1/2 - 15-20 days.
It is excreted by the kidneys (with iv in the introduction - with bile 2%), as well as during hemodialysis.


Tuberculosis (various forms and localizations) in the complex treatment of drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis.

Terizidone can cause the development of deficiency of vitamin B12 and / or folic acid.
In these cases, the dose of vitamin B12 and / or folic acid should be increased.Monthly monitoring of blood and urine tests, liver function parameters: ALT (alanine aminotransferase), ACT (aspartate aminotransferase), bilirubin concentration.
The use of the drug against the background of alcohol intake is associated with an increased incidence of side effects, up to the development of convulsions, so during the intake of the drug should avoid the use of alcoholic beverages.

It is necessary to monitor the patient's condition: health workers monitoring patients in the hospital, as well as members of the family of outpatients taking terizidone, should be informed of the possibility of developing side effects from the central nervous system and are instructed to immediately inform the attending physician when depression or changes in the behavior of the patient.

For the prevention of neurotoxic effects, anticonvulsant and sedative drugs are administered.Hemodialysis is effective.

Ethanol increases the risk of epileptic seizures.
