How long does it take to fully recover from typhoid fever

Thanks for the query.

The medications for typhoid fever need to be given for 7-10 days during which fever should subside. Following recovery from fever, other things like weakness etc should settle in another week to 10 days. If the disease was very severe, nutritional supplements (vitamins & minerals) for about a month can help replenish the body stores.

With the availability of antibiotics in this era, it has become very easy to treat typhoid and it is not a dreaded disease as was considered in older days.

Hope this answers your query. If you have more queries, I will be happy to answer.

Good luck...
