Meningitis treatment depends on the cause. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial meningitis and antifungals are used to treat fungal meningitis. Antivirals can be used to treat some viral causes of meningitis. Non-infectious causes of meningitis are treated by addressing the underlying illness or injury. There are no specific treatments for other infectious causes of meningitis. Medications might be used to reduce inflammation or relieve your symptoms.
