Hi,
Increase of sgot 47 is not much and it has not much importance at this level.
But Hepato toxic drug in HRZ pedia kit can be replaced with other substitutes after advise by your pediatrician
As this medicines are to be taken for primary complex,we may think of other substitutes..
I find this answer helpful

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
