Hi! My mother is 43 years old and her weight is 49kg. She went through a sputum check which is done for 3 days. In which 1st test came negative but the other two were positive. After consulting with the Doctor, She has started her medication from today. 2 tablets of Forecox after 15 minutes of taking 1 tablet of Pan-D. Also half tablet of Benadon on alternate days. But the problem is she is suffering from fever since last 10 days. If she takes the medicine in the morning her temperature goes normal but again in the evening temperature rises above 100. If she is taking paracetamol then it's results lasts for about 10-12 hours. Can medicine cause any kind of problem and is this also the symptom of TB?

Sputum afb positive lead to pulmonary tuberculosis open type. Better you people give her to mask to wear around mouth, destroyed cough which is expelled by mother. Kept in well ventilated room. Fever may be occur regular till 1-2 month. Don't worry she will be okey within 1-2 month. Take chest physician opinion. Thanks.
