Cefuroxime Questions

Hello Doctor, i want to know that Altacef can use for typhoid cure? Please suggest.

For empiric treatment of uncomplicated typhoid fever, the IAP recommends cefixime and, as a second-line agent, azithromycin. For complicated typhoid fever, they recommend ceftriaxone. ... In the United States, it is still used specifically for S typhi infection.

Going by the reports, you need to treat both simultaneously and avoid coitus till future samples from both of you show no growth on culture. Treatment from your physician with a drug from the most sensitive to antibiotic group for sufficient duration is mandatory.

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.
