I would like to know if there is any family h/o T.B.'

if answer is no then stop the T.B. medicines and review Xray because diagnosing Pulm.T.B. only by a single x-ray is not justified.
Get sputum exam, morning Gastric aspirate sample exam for ZN Staining, Mantoux, Quantiferon TB Gold. I mean do extensive work up to make sure before you give ATT to a child of 3.1 years. And apprently she is receiving overdose ATT.

And yes ATT has high incidence of side- effects but surely has to be taken if sure of diagnosis because in that case risk/reward ratio favours taking ATT.
