Rifampin is often used along with isoniazid for the treatment of tuberculosis.

 

Vitamin D

Supplementation Possibly Helpful

Rifampin might interfere with the metabolism of vitamin D. 1 Although it is not clear whether this interaction actually causes vitamin D deficiency, making sure that you get enough vitamin D on general principle is probably a good idea.
