Viral meningitis typically requires supportive therapy only; most viruses responsible for causing meningitis are not amenable to specific treatment.
Antibiotics are administered for bacterial meningitis. The type will vary depending on the bacteria causing the infection. Other medications will be used to treat symptoms such as brain swelling, shock, and seizures.
Fungal meningitis, such as cryptococcal meningitis, is treated with long courses of highly dosed antifungals.
