What are the causes to cough blood in the morning and evening ?

I am currently taking quadtab medicine. My queries are: Is it possible that the symptoms occur during medication? What could be the possible causes of coughing up blood in morning and evening? Before medication, I did not experience this, just a chronic cough but after I was diagnose most of the symptoms come out..

Hello,
Thanks for visiting HCM.
Coughing out of blood in tuberculosis has several causes like cavitory bleeding via rasmussen aneurysm, aspergilloma inside cavity, bronchiectasis, amyloidosis etc. Bloody sputum may even persist after the TB is healed.
How was Tuberculosis diagnosed? Was sputum examination done? Have you taken medication for TB in the past? What is your age now?
You may wait for at least 2 weeks following treatment if the blood being coughed out is minimal. If it is more in amount or two weeks have elapsed following treatment, better go for CT scan thorax and CT angio for lungs and if active bleeding site is found, better go for arterial embolisation.

Best wishes

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Coughing and sputum with blood in it is a sign and symptom of PTB .So it needs treatment.Now if you have recently started treatment say about a week back then please wait as it takes time of around 15 days to develop a good effect.But if you are taking the medicines for more than that period then you should consult your doctor for further examination and advice because then it can be said that the medicine is not giving the desired effect.
Please consult your doctor that will be better option.
Thanks

I ve had the flu for the past week. I ve got over the runny nose and cold part. However, this morning I coughed and a bit of blood was in with the phlegm that I coughed up. This is the first and only time that I have coughed up blood. Is there anything to be worried about? Or is just a one off bit of blood?

My boyfriend is 50yrs old, was diagnosed with HIV and Hep years ago and has been doing well on his meds....in Feb he had to have his right lung drained and some scar tissue removed. In March it was discovered he had legions in left lung; which were removed and biopsied. The lower 1/3 of the right lung was a mass of legions which are still there....the biopsy was cancerous and we were told he had stage 4 adenocarcinoma...he did a round of 6 treatments of chemo every 3 weeks with good results and has since had 2 maintenance treatments of the alimta (the most recent one was this past Tuesday) He has started wheezing and is coughing up blood. It was dark when he got up this morning and very pail this afternoon...should we be concerned about this?

I have had a chronic cough with phlegm for over a year now. I barely get any sleep, and I sometimes cough so hard I throw up. I have been on nasonex now for 6 weeks and my cough has actually gotten worse. I have been tested for allergies and have none. My doctor says it's post nasal drip. How else can it be treated?
