Medications

As soon as your doctor suspects that you have plague, you'll need to be admitted to an isolation room in a hospital. There, you'll receive powerful antibiotics, such as:
  • Gentamicin
  • Doxycycline (Vibramycin)
  • Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)

In addition, the Food and Drug Administration has approved another antibiotic, levofloxacin (Levaquin), for treatment of plague.
