Which is a better antibiotic to have for typhoid. Augmentin Duo 650 mg or Ceftum 500. Thank you.

Both are different. And have their own merits and demerits. Better take according to your physician advise. These are antibiotics and not peppermint. Should never be taken without proper Consult. The dose and duration are very crucial.

Please get a urine analysis and culture done and take a urologist opinion. Uti during pregnancy is very common and has to be dealt with a lot of care so that there is no harm to the foetus.

Fever and cough for 1 month. Already taken azithromycin, cefuroxime, cefpodoxime. But no effect.

Fever and cough for 1 month. Already taken azithromycin, cefuroxime, cefpodoxime. But no effect.
Many respiratory infections start out as a dry cough, and then become a wet cough or productive cough as the lungs start to produce more sputum. Some types of chronic cough or severe cough may remain a dry cough, or become a persistent dry cough. If it persists for a longer time, it may cause some severe throat and lung problems. Your child may need a medical consultation.
