This entry includes information regarding both Pathologic (2005) and Pathologic 2 (2019).

Antibiotics refers to a category of drugs found in Pathologic 2 that can be used to treat people who have been infected with the Plague.

In order to correctly treat people, the player must first diagnose which Layer the infection is in and then give the patient the corresponding antibiotic. If an incorrect antibiotic is prescribed, the patient's infection will only decrease by 25% of the assigned antibiotic's normal potency.

Pills

Antibiotic pills can be purchased from Pharmacies, and bartered from the Town's children and the Dead Item Shop. They may also occasionally be obtained during story-related events. Pills can be traded to infected townsfolk and Dandy in the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress.

Effects

  • Note that all of the following reductions made to Infection (Player & NPC) and Health occur relative to those stats' current value rather than their total value, such that neither status meter is fully depleted.

Home-Brewed

See "Yas" Antibiotic/"Medrel" Antibiotic/"Zürkh" Antibiotic

As of Day 4, once the Brewery has been fixed, the Haruspex can make home-brewed antibiotics by combining a Tincture with an infected organ or blood.

Home-brewed antibiotics have varying potency, brew time, and additional effects, all of which depend on which organs and tinctures were used to brew them.

Home-brewed antibiotics can be traded to Worms, infected townsfolk and Dandy in the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress.

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.
The studious creation and testing of home-brewed antibiotics will eventually lead the Haruspex to the solution for the Panacea.

Antibiotics refers to a category of drugs found in Pathologic which can use used to lower the infection of a healer or may be given to an Executor stationed outside of locations to allow an infected Bound to be visited. Executors will only accept Feromycinum or Monomycinum to give to the infected Bound if the player is not curing them.
