Rifabutin Drug Information
Mycobutin is used alone or with another medication to help prevent a certain serious infection (Mycobacterium avium complex-MAC). Rifabutin is known as a rifamycin antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats and prevents only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
How to Use Mycobutin
Take Mycobutin by mouth with or without food, usually once or twice daily or as directed by your doctor. Take Mycobutin with food if stomach upset occurs. For the treatment of tuberculosis, Mycobutin is sometimes taken twice weekly. Dosage of Mycobutin is based on your medical condition, weight, interacting drugs, and response to treatment. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Mycobutin at the same time(s) every day. Continue to take Mycobutin until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear. Stopping the medication too early or skipping doses may allow the bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection and cause the infection to be more difficult to treat (resistant). Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Before taking rifabutin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other rifamycins (such as rifampin); or if you have any other allergies. Mycobutin may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Mycobutin, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney disease, liver disease, a certain blood disorder (porphyria). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Rifabutin may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work as well. Do not have any immunizations/vaccinations while using Mycobutin unless your doctor tells you to. During pregnancy, Mycobutin should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Mycobutin passes into breast milk. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before breast-feeding. If you have HIV disease, do not breast-feed because breast milk can transmit HIV.
If you miss a dose of Mycobutin, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.azole antifungals (such as fluconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole), ciprofloxacin, delavirdine, macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin). Rifabutin can speed up the removal of other medications from your body, which may affect how they work. Examples of affected drugs include aprepitant/fosaprepitant, lurasidone, phenytoin, ranolazine, suvorexant, tacrolimus, tasimelteon, "blood thinners" (such as warfarin), calcium channel blockers (such as diltiazem, verapamil), certain combination products used to treat chronic hepatitis C (ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir), among others.
