However the blood culture report is shown positive today. IN the meanwhile he is being administered Taxim 0 200 past 2 days. Is this tablet meant for typhoid?

Hello,

Taxim O is not given for typhoid although it is a broad spectrum antibiotic. It has other uses such as tonsillitis,bronchitis etc. Ofloxacin and Azithromycin are widely in use for typhoid so please talk to the doctor. Please feel free to ask follow up questions.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prabhash Verma, General & Family Physician
