Discussion of treatments for Anthrax:

Anthrax General: DBMD (Excerpt)

Doctors can prescribe effective antibiotics. To be effective, treatment should be initiated early. If left untreated, the disease can be fatal. (Source: excerpt from Anthrax General: DBMD)

Anthrax: NWHIC (Excerpt)

In addition to ciprofloxacin and doxycycline, penicillin is FDA-approved for the treatment of anthrax infections. In the case of inhalation anthrax or systemic involvement, the CDC recommends the use of multiple antibiotics. (Source: excerpt from Anthrax: NWHIC)

Anthrax: NWHIC (Excerpt)

The CDC has stated that the antibiotic of choice for initial therapy in asymptomatic pregnant women who have been exposed to anthrax spores is ciprofloxacin. In the case of exposure to anthrax, children would also most likely receive ciprofloxacin initially. Doxycycline may also be used in children and pregnant women for treatment of anthrax, although it can have adverse effects on teeth and bone development. The potential risks of using these drugs must be weighed carefully against the risk for developing a life-threatening disease due to anthrax. Penicillin may be used in cases where the specific anthrax strain has been shown to be penicillin-sensitive. (Source: excerpt from Anthrax: NWHIC)
