Respected Sir/Madam, 6 days earlier when I had my blood test then I came to know that I am suffering from Typhoid. The doctor recommended me cefixime-200mg and ofloxacin-200mg(twice a day for 15 days) and Paracetamol - 500mg (thrice a day for 2 days). But the thing is that from the day of starting the medicines my stool was totally black like a charcoal color and has a very bad odour. It was the first time I am suffering from this problem. I am a little bit confused whether it was because of the disease or medicines. Pls help me out and does I need to take some other medicines or not.
