I can understand your concern. she is on treatment of tuberculosis and she will have to continue it as long as prescribed by the physician. and the fever will also come down gradually.
additionally you can take a paracetamol 500 mg twice or thrice a day as needed to control the temperature.
give her lots of water and a high protein diet as well.

Continuing medicine is the only way. Please be advised, the fever will come down slowly. Also you can take Tab Meftal forte half as needed for fever , on top the medicines ur already taking
Cold sponging as well.
This should help
