We will develop a personalized treatment plan for your viral or bacterial meningitis designed to control the inflammation of membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord.


Viral meningitis may improve with rest. If you have bacterial meningitis, which is more severe, we will treat you quickly to minimize the impact on your health. We may administer intravenous antibiotics along with fluids if you have a fever, sweating, vomiting and diarrhea. We also may recommend cortisone medications to reduce brain swelling and anticonvulsants to prevent or treat seizures.
