You gotta be kidding: Typhoid fever is an incredibly nasty infection, which has serious complicaton and can cause death, and whose treatment is often quite rigorous. When people are most concerned about when they can drink, they often have a drinking problem. It is not safe to drink while you are being treated for an infection, and you should not drink until you are off antibiotics, and then only modestly. .
