Weird smell coming from my lungs

It's been almost three months I am being treated for tuberculosis,  I have been taking antibiotics medicine, 4 pills everyday.
Sometimes when deep breathing I can smell something strange, or when I am in bed for long time. The smell comes from inside the lung,  it last for seconds.  Is this the medicine I am smelling?  The Smell is like when water gets inside your nose or lungs, I remember the same smell when swimming

Hello~I would certainly ask your prescribing physician about this or even your pharmacist.  There could be a small possibility that it is the drugs building up and that is the cause of the odor. But, as I said, it is best to check with your GP.
