Take Different Antibiotics For Typhus Typhus?
Hello, I want to ask. I have a fever for 4 days. On the second day I went to the clinic and was given the antibiotic amoxicillin I had already taken 4 antibiotic pills, then the fourth day I was told to check the lab and the results were positive typhus and the doctor gave me the antibiotic ciprofloxacin and I had used 2 of these antibiotic pills. So the doctor who gives antibiotics is different. Which drink should I continue?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Actually, both the amoxicillin or ciprofloxacin drug groups are the drug of choice in the treatment of typhoid fever. But now the incidence of resistance to amoxicillin is increasing so it is rarely given for cases of typhoid fever. If at the last examination you were given a type of ciprofloxacin drug, you should continue this medication in accordance with the instructions for use of the drug. This type of drug is available in oral form, good enough to prevent disease relapse, as well as a longer half-life so that enough is consumed twice a day. Take regular control of the doctor's fever as long as you still have complaints given the typhoid fever can take up to 3-4 weeks to recover.
That's all, hope you can help.
