Were you looking for information about Rifadin? Rifidin is a common misspelling of Rifadin.
Rifadin® (rifampin) is a medication prescribed to treat tuberculosis. It is also approved to get rid of a certain type of bacteria called Neisseria meningitides (the bacteria that causes meningococcal infections, such as meningitis) in people who have this type of bacteria in their nose and throat but do not have symptoms of a meningococcal infection.
Although most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include heartburn, loss of appetite, and headaches. This medicine comes as capsules and an injection that is given into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, injection).
