This study introduces the pharmacological basis of choice of drugs or drugs -regimens for adequate therapeutic action. Pharmacological parameters such as peak concentration (P.C.), peak hour, half-life and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) coverage of Isoniazid. Thiacetazonc and Pyraziriamide were estimated. Parameters for the other four important anti-tuberculous drugs i.e. Streptomycin, Rifampicin, Ethambutol and PAS are also considered. PC/MIC ratio may be considered a better and reasonable index for evaluation of drug action. Considering al 1 these data, suggestions have been made for drugs and combination of drugs for most effective action on pharmaco-therapeutic
