In brief: Bronchitis

You may simply have a lingering dry,hacking nonproductive cough as a result of tracheal irritation rather than an active bronchial infection which usually produces discolored sputum.
Levaquin is effective for treatment of bronchitis. If you only have a dry hacking cough, take a cough suppressant like robitussinDM to quiet the cough and don't try to force up sputum that isn't there.
