Generic Rifadin is a drug identical to the branded medicine called Rifadin. It is a potent antibiotic primarily used for the therapy of tuberculosis and leprosy, but it can be also prescribed for other infections if the first-line antibiotics are ineffective or cannot be used for some reason. The medicine can be used even in newborns and pregnant women but with caution, only under a doctor’s supervision, and if there is no other way of safer treatment.
