First of all let me tell u that tuberculosis is completely curable, just u need to take complete course of medications. give ur child anti-pyretic drugs like paracetamol for fever. allow time for anti TB drugs to act. Some anti TB drugs causes flu like syndrome or discoloration of urine, should not discontinue medications if u notice these symptoms. consult ur doctors if u notice any other adverse effects with regard to anti TB drugs.

Dont worry fever and other symptoms will improve with due course of time. Allow time for medications to act... take care bye.....
