It probably wouldn't help aleviate any of the uncomfortable symptoms of having mono. Alcohol affects your liver mostly, since the liver functions to remove alcohol from your blood. So while you're sick with mono (mononucleosis) your lymph nodes and entire lymphatic system is already under attack from the virus affecting them. One way a doctor double-checks to see if you do have mono is by palpating (feeling) your abdomen, to see whether or not you do indeed have the signs which are a swollen liver or spleen. So by drinking alcohol, that's just adding an unnecessary stressor to your body, particularly your liver.
