Non-stop coughing

I was diagnosed with bronchitis three weeks ago. Had a steroid shot, a round of levaquin 750mg and started a prednisone dose pack. One week later I was seen again and was no better at all. Now we are at the end of week 3 the prednisone is up to 60 mg a day and all I do is cough - sounds like a dog barking, The coughing is nearly continual and doesn't allow for much sleep.Still wheezing, still coughing up mucous. Chest x-ray neg. for pneumonia. Anybody got any ideas?
