In brief: Ask ID specialist

Most likely you are not the one with the problem because the patient is very likely extremely ill.
Ask an infectious disease specialist. Drug sensitivities can be tested from cerebrospinal fluid specimens. The antibiotic(s) chosen must penetrate the blood brain barrier.
