Dosage.

Isoniazid is most commonly taken once daily. When used for the treatment of active tuberculosis, some physicians prefer using a high dose twice weekly. Isoniazid is best to take INH on an empty stomach for maximum absorption into the body, but if it causes abdominal discomfort, it may be taken with food or with a non-aluminum antacid such as Tums or Titralac. (Aluminum-containing antacids bind to the INH in the intestine and prevent its absorption.)
