What is the recommended treatment for pneumonia?

Treatment of pneumonia depends on its likely cause and how ill the person is. The usual approach is to give antibiotics effective against the most likely bacteria causing the infection.

If you develop pneumonia while in a hospital or another healthcare facility (such as a nursing home), you may need antibiotics that treat more resistant bacteria.

If influenza 
virus (the flu) is occurring in your area, you may be given an antiviral medication instead of or in addition to antibiotics.

If your immune system is suppressed, your healthcare provider may choose to treat fungal infections as well. In certain cases, you may also be given a corticosteroid medicine.

Oxygen is given if you are having trouble breathing with
low oxygen levels.
