Thanks for posting your query.
From your description it seems your daughter is actually suffering from a side effect of zanocin and according to the manufacturers of the product, it should be discontinued immediately and the treating physician informed immediately.
Recovering from an infectious illness or being sick could also cause the child to have sleepless nights.
My suggestion is to contact your baby's doctor right away and get medical attention.

Hope this helps
