How do medications treat typhus?

Your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic medication to treat typhus. You will need to take the antibiotic orally for at least a week. Make sure to take the whole course of antibiotics, even if you feel better before it's finished. In rare occasions, doctors will inject antibiotics if a patient is too sick to swallow a pill. The doctor may also recommend medication to relieve symptoms, such as cough, fever, and headache.
