Night cough after TB Lymphadenitis treatment

My friend was diagnosed with TB lymphadenitis . CT Scan had shown multiple enlarged pretracheal,aorto-pulmonary window,subcarinal and hilar nodes. A small nodule was also present in the superior segment of right lower lobe.  
Ultrasound guided Fine Needle Aspiration from Bilateral Supraclavicular Lymph node showed occasional Epitheloid Granuloma,occasional lymphocytes against erythrocytes. Stain for AFB TB was negative.  The doctor said its TB lymphadenitis or lymphadenopathy.
He  was subsequently put on TB medication for 9months. But even after completion of 9months of treatment dry cough occurs at night only. No phlegm comes out. On certain night cough is absent.   Is TB still there or is it normal to have dry cough.
