Hi, Welcome to Practo First of all I wld like to knw detail of basis of diagnosis if TB. I agree with second doctor that adding any Medicine within 1week is not advisible. And fever wld usually subside after 2- 3week of treatment. And v add levoflox and other drug for MDR TB on which 1st level drug are not prescribed at all.
