You consult a physician with reports and explain you syptoms and problems and he will examine you and correlate the reports with your clinical history and advice the proper medication. Ciprofloxacin is the drug of choice in typhoid fever and in typhoid fever fever will day by day increases in severity thats why it is called step ladder pattern fever, so in the initial it will be low grade fever and gradually severity will increase . So meet you doctor and take proper advice and follow up
