Thanks for the query
As you are suffering from typhoid and its already 5 days of fever. So now you take Cefixime 200 mg twice a day for 14 days,Cap Pantop 40 mg once a day for 7 days. It will also help in your irregular bowel habit. Make a fever chart 6 hrly and then see the trend. Don't take juices( particularly from outside), these are actually source of infection. Take easily digestible regular home food and plenty of water.
I hope this answer your query well
Wish you a good health
With regards
