The side effects of Rifampicin and liver damage which it causes are rarely serious.
PAS inhibits its absorption. Increase of transaminase activity is frequent but usually transient. It
is a powerful enzyme-inducer. Effect of contraceptive drugs and quinidine, when simultaneously
administered, is reduced and metabolism of dapsone, anti-diabetic drugs and steroids is increased.
