Brief Answer:
This is the correct treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to this forum.

During initial treatment of typhoid fever monocef which has ceftriaxone antibiotic is given.

If child doesn't respond to monocef then blood culture is sent and according to blood culture report, antibiotic is changed.

I think you should wait for few days.

I hope this will help you.
Take care.
