    Get better soon dude.

    Luckily, no, I have no experience of this type of thing.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    Not had that form of Typhoid, sounds unpleasant. Did get something similar in New Dehli. Took half a pack of Lomatil (turns liquid into solid) and went to Nepal.

    Try to carefully wash your hands after the bathroom and before eating to avoid giving it to someone else.
