Neisseria Meningitides Prophylaxis

There are three options for prophylaxis:

 - Rifampin is administered at a dose of 10mg/kg with a max dose of 600mg every 12 hours for four doses and this is 100% effective as far as we know.

 - Ceftriaxone 250mg IM can be given for one dose, which is 97-100% effective.

 - The least effective option is Ciprofloxacin 500mg PO for one dose, and that’s 90-95% effective.
