Used for the treatment of tuberculosis, isoniazid can interfere with the absorption or metabolism of numerous nutrients. Since this antibiotic is commonly taken for a very long period of time, deficiencies can mount up over the course of treatment, impairing overall health.
To prevent these complications, it may make sense to take vitamin B 6 supplements at a dose of 15 to 30 mg per day when using isoniazid.
