Ethionamide Indication

For use in the treatment of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis when other antitubercular drugs have failed.

Ethionamide Pharmacology

Ethinamate is bacteriostatic against M. tuberculosis. In a study examining ethionamide resistance, ethionamide administered orally initially decreased the number of culturable Mycobacterium tuberculosis organisms from the lungs of H37Rv infected mice. Drug resistance developed with continued ethionamide monotherapy, but did not occur when mice received ethionamide in combination with streptomycin or isoniazid.

Ethionamide Absorption

Essentially completely absorbed following oral administration and not subjected to any appreciable first pass metabolism. Bioavailability approximately 100%.

Ethionamide side effects and Toxicity

Symptoms of overdose include convulsions, nausea, and vomiting.
