Thanks for writing in to us.

You have been diagosed as having typhoid and are taking Tab Ciprofloxacin for 7 days. Also you are a patient of mitral valve prolapse for 5 years.

Ciprofloxacin belongs to a class of medicines known as fluoroquinolones. Fluoroquinolones are now recommended by most authorities for the treatment of typhoid fever. A course of at least two weeks of ciprofloxacin will effectively treat typhoid fever.

You must also take necessary food precautions for a while and eat only home cooked healthy food containing very less amount of oil and spices.

Hope your query is answered.
Wishing you good health.
