I have some type of inflammation type reaction and wheezy breathing, coughing up blood after a few days of being on the drug( ceftaz and bactrim). I rarely cough up any blood, unless I have had a cold and that's most likely from my throat being raw. The Ceftaz is the only drug that can treat the cepacia I have(well meropenem but am allergic to it also ), so they wont give it. I thought about suggesting they give me steroids with it to treat the side effects. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem.
