A:   Thanks for your question. There are standard guidelines for treating syphilis and the main stay of treatment is 'Penicillin' .Alternative antibiotics used are : Tetracycline, erythromycin, ceftriaxone , doxycycline and tetracycline . I understand these are not costly medicines. I am not sure where from are you getting those '1000'Rs medicines. It is really a surprise for me. If you feel these are costly enough , then you may visit to Govt hospitals in India , where these medicines are given free. Hope this helps.
