Rifadin, known generically as rifampin, is an oral prescription antibiotic that prevents the spread of bacteria in the human body. It can be used to prevent or treat tuberculosis (TB) and to kill bacteria in the nose and throat that can cause meningitis, even if no infection is evident. Rifadin also prevents the spread of bacteria to other people. It may be prescribed for additional purposes not listed here as deemed appropriate by a physician.
