Hello there. I can understand your concern. The features of typhoid are fever with chills and increasing in a step ladder form, evening rise in temperature and night sweats. On examination relative bradycardia is a unique feature. The treatment was not proper as such. Tab. Zenflox 100 twice a day for 5 days and tab. Medomol 300 mg thrice a day for 3 days. Additionally you can give tab. Glutanase once a day after food for 10 days. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
