Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your daughter has urinary tract infection with klebsiella. And your sensitivity test shows sensitive for amikacin, ofloxacin or azithromycin. She should be given ofloxacin rather then ceftrioxone. It is more sensitive and it will clear infection faster then cefixime or ceftrioxone. These all are prescription based medicine so consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have any doubts then contact me at bit.ly/Drsanghvihardik, I will be happy to answer you.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
