How do medications treat Vibrio parahaemolyticus food poisoning?

A common medication used to treat severe Vibrio parahaemolyticus food poisoning is the antibiotic tetracycline. Another antibiotic medication often administered in these cases is ciprofloxicin. Each of these medications works by targeting and killing the underlying Vibrio parahaemolyticus causing your symptoms, and may be administered orally or as an injection. Antibiotics must be taken until the bacteria are discarded out of the body, and they may produce side effects. Therefore, it is important to follow the doctor's recommendations when taking antibiotics.
