Things appeared pretty bad for Tanjiro until chapter 204, which brought some hope for Tanjiro’s return. Chapter 202 features Nezuko trying to reach out to the human side of Tanjiro as he is in the middle of his transformation. 

Nezuko hugs Tanjiro and calls him Onii-Chan in the hopes of getting him to remember something so that it could help Tanjiro regain control over his body. At first, they injected Tanjiro with a medicine that would stop or at least slow down his transformation into a Demon..

Shinobu created this medicine for Nezuko in the first place. After hurting Kanao, Tanjiro appears a little more like himself, and the medication also seems to work on him.
