Hi,
All the anti tb medications including rifampicin should be take at once after light breakfast. Also your anti tb medications regime should contain rifampicin (The dose of rifampicin will be 450 mg as per your weight.).

Be careful to complete the entire course of medicines without missing a single dose, careless intake of medicine may result in MDR TB.
