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
