When symptoms are severe, oxygen levels in blood are reduced and can be so dangerously low, they cause several sleep interruptions during the night. If you suffer from asthma and your sleep pattern is abnormal you must get medical attention.
Generally this annoyance presented during sleep is a signal of an inadequate control of asthma. If there is an adequate control but you suffer these symptoms you probably need some treatment adjustments.
Asthma treatment has changed with the inclusion of new medicines that have a longer lasting efect like inhaled steroids (beclomethasone, budesonide, triamcinolone, etc.) also long-duration bronchodilators like Salmeterol, Formoterol, etc. and leukotrienes inhibitors (Montelukast, Zafirlukast, etc.)
These medicines are used in combination and achieve an adequate effect for 24 hours and it’s possible to sleep without symptoms and have a successful sleep, wake up recovered and ready for the day.
If you suffer from these symptoms, go to your doctor since you’re probably not taking your medicines the right way or the medicines themselves are not the best ones.
