Typhoid: There are many strains of salmonella typhi that have become resistant to antibiotics. In some cases the complications of this disease (like osteomyelitis, abscesses, etc.) may require prolonged courses of therapy. Go back and see the doctor who diagnosed and treated you. This could be very severe.

Cipro/Levaquin: The strain of salmonella typhi needs to be tested for antibiotic sensitivity. For uncomplicated typhoid fever with a sensitive strain the best treatment is oral Cipro (ciprofloxacin) or levaquin. Alternatives are amoxicillin, septra or azithromycin. Quinolone risistant strains are best treated with Azithromycin or IV ceftriaxone.
