Antibiotics are a medical supply used to cure any Infections spread by Zombies and any form of Dysentery. They can be created using a chemistry recipe with a Beaker on a Campfire using a suitable Combustible fuel source. They can also be crafted at the Chemistry Station, which is more efficient and requires less ingredients. Antibiotics are often found in Medicine Cabinets, in Pill Cases at Pop-N-Pills, and in Supply Crates. The Antibiotics is a far better alternative to the Herbal Antibiotics as it can cure at 25%.


Search for Antibiotics in your Campfire or Chemistry inventory search bar and then select Antibiotics and craft.

Antibiotics are vital in the cure of Zombie infection, it has a multi-tiered effect which is dependent on your current level of infection.

    • Effect chance 40%.
    • You are immune to further infection.

At infection level 3, taking Antibiotics will reduce the infection down a level, and so on, each time one is taken, until enough Antibiotics have been consumed to become cured. The Cured buff will become active after completely removing the infection, granting immunization from further infection for 24 game hours.


You will gain 80 experience when you cook the recipe the first time, and 20 experience each time you cook it afterwards.


  • The Antibiotics can be crafted also if the player has 10 Old Sham Sandwichs and crafts them into Moldy Bread. The remaining ingredients are easy to gather.


As of A13 Antibiotics no longer gives the wellness effect [1].
