Miscellaneous antituberculosis agents
A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Ethambutol is classed as a miscellaneous antituberculosis agent. It is taken up by the Mycobacterium and inhibits bacterial growth. It is a bacteriostatic antibiotic. Resistant strains emerge quickly if this drug is used on its own so it is best used in combination with other antituberculosis medicines.
