Typhoid, loose motions and fever after treatment, Fevago syrup, Meftal-P

Hi Doctor, My daughter is 2 years old and she was detected with Typhoid . She was hospitalized on 26th April 2012 and she was discharged on 29th April 2012. We completed a 10 days treatment where we have given Tazocef 500 ml and Amikacin 80 ml twice a day as injections to the todler. The 10 days course was completed on 6th May 2012 and now yesterday she got some loose motions and today she is getting high fever again. Is it normal? Also we have given and we again started her giving Fevago syrup and Meftal-P after every 4 hours. Does this means that she got typhoid again?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Though relapse is known to occur in typhoid fever it is advisable to examine the child again to see whether there is any other problem. After clinical examination the doctor ca decide whether any further investigation is needed.n Both Fevago and Meftal-P contain Paracetamol. Take care not to exceed the recommended dosage. It is not advisable to give Meftal-P every four hours as this can lead to over dosage of Mefenamic acid.
