Health Tip: Does Asthma Affect Your Sleep?

Take medications as your doctor prescribes

(HealthDay News) -- Asthma can affect your sleep, as symptoms often worsen at night.

The National Sleep Foundation offers this advice to help control asthma and enjoy a better night's sleep:

  • Take all medications as prescribed, at the same time each day.
  • Use a peak flow meter regularly to monitor changes in lung function.
  • Learn what your asthma triggers are, and take steps to avoid those triggers.
  • Get plenty of sleep each night.
  • Ask your doctor about the potential benefits of an anti-inflammatory medication.
