Anti-Plague medication?

Yes, literally.  Doxycycline is the antibiotic-of-choice for early treatment of chlamydia, primary syphilis, anthrax and bubonic plague.

Oh, and Lyme disease: on Tuesday I had seven sheep ticks removed from various parts of my body (primarily the backs of my knees), ~48 hours after visiting an area with a history of infections.

The prophylactic course comprises two (2) capsules, to be taken at the same time, but as is standard for antibiotics one must "take regularly and complete the course". I hope I'll be able to accommodate that rigorous treatment regime.
