In brief: Does not add up

Widal test is an obsolete test for typhoid fever.
It is very unlikely that you have typhoid fever, living in Pittsburgh. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) does not treat elevated ALT, you need to determine the cause of elevated ALT and treat that. If you drink alcohol, stay away from it entirely.
