An Antibiotic is a pharmaceutical drug.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Antibiotics, first created at TL-6, are drugs that attack microorganisms that have invaded the body and thus hasten recovery while lessening severity. While generally effective, antibiotics have drawbacks: they may not be effective against the specific microorganisms in a patient’s body, and they sometimes cause allergic reactions. Antibiotics have a cost of Cr50 per injection, and they must be taken once per day during illness.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Microorganisms can develop resistance to antibiotics.
