Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Looking at your complaints, your weakness is due to anemia.

  • You have iron deficiency anemia after looking at your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and you need to take Iron supplements for three months.
  • I suggest tablet Bizfer-XT for three months. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • Regarding your fever, continue Oritaxim-O 200 (Cefixime) for five days and along with that I suggest Paracetamol.
  • Other causes of fever like urinary tract infection and malarial fever should be ruled out if you have a persistent fever after five days.

The Probable causes:

Nutritional deficiency.

Investigations to be done:

Serum ferritin level.

Differential diagnosis:

Malarial fever or UTI.

Treatment plan:

Tablet Bizfer-XT for three months.

Regarding follow up:
