How to Get Antibiotics in 7 Days to Die

Players can either locate or craft Antibiotics as part of their terrifying journey in the deceased world. Antibiotics are typically stashed away at Pop-N-Pills pharmacies, some medicine and pill cabinets, and oftentimes at Supply Drops. They’re more of a rarity to come across, so be sure to stock up on them before you move on to your next objective. If you’re having trouble locating these spots, you’ll want to consider some craftsmanship.

There are two ways that you can cook up the medicine in question for yourself. Firstly, you’ll need to complete one of two prerequisites: learn the respective recipe or achieve Physician level 4. Once you do, you’ll have the necessary knowledge to proceed. And secondly, either a Campfire or a Chemistry Station must be active. You’ll practically be golden at this point.

To craft Antibiotics, here are the methods:

  1. Mix 4 Old Sham Sandwich, 3 Nitrate Powder, and 1 Bottled Water at a Campfire with a Beaker.
  2. Mix 1 Old Sham Sandwich, 1 Nitrate Powder, and 1 Bottled Murky Water at a Chemistry Station.

Consuming Antibiotics will provide you with a 25% reduction rate if you’re infected. It’s significantly stronger than the aforementioned Jar of Honey and the craftable Herbal Antibiotics, which we’ve briefly covered before with our Cure Infection guide (linked above).
