Dear Lybrateuser, Pulmonary Tuberculosis is a long treatment, so kindly be patient. Reduction of Cough & Sputum quantity and frequency will depend on many factors, but if there is no improvement after 2 months, then you may need a second opinion from a Pulmonologist.
Get re evaluated by repeat xray chest, cbc esr and sputum afb to assess improvement
