I mostly feel that you are HIV negative as you have turned out to be negative after 6 months.
Drugs for Typhoid do not have any influence on HIV test.
Symptoms of HIV are repeated episodes of fever, cough, diarrhea, weight loss, respiratory infection etc...and you do not have any of above symptoms.

Generally incubation period for HIV is 6 months and sometimes even longer too.
Tridot test is A good test and it is not a outdated test.
If you are having still doubt's please contact a near by ICTC (integrated counselling and testing Centre) where you can get tested and also counselled on HIV.
All the best
