Hello there,

How are you feeling today? If you are feeling symptomatically better, I would suggest that you continue the medication macpod 200 for another 2 days and visit the doctor after that.Macpod (Cefpodoxime) is an antibiotic and it is used in the treatment of typhoid. The total duration of treatment can be for a period of 7-10 days. Since you have already taken the medicine for 5 days, I would suggest that you take macpod 200 for another 2 days and then follow it up with your doctor. Lee cet (levocetrizine) is normally given for colds , allergy etc. What was the indication in your case? If at any time ,you develop high fever, abdominal pain, loose stools or cough please visit your doctor immediately. All the best for your exams :)
