Does anyone else have problems sleeping after using your nebulisor? I have had severe problems in the last 2 weeks with sinus and lung infections, which brought on severe asthma. I have had asthma before but not at this leval. My doctor sent me home with a nebulisor and I have used it almost twice a day for 6 days. I have noticed though that it increases my coughing for about a hour to 2 hours after using, and i have had several nights with little or no sleep because i am coughing up mucus. should I not do treatments at night, even though I am wheezing? Or is the coughing part of my getting better? It makes my heart race and hot flashes and I have to cough and blow my nose almost continually. This is the first time I have used a nebulisor on a frequent basis. anyone else cough more after treatment?

Welcome to HealingWell.  When I am having to use my nebulizer, I try not to use it just before bedtime because it will keep me awake.  The treatment is probably breaking up some of the phlegm in your chest, which is good.  If you only have to use it twice per day, why not try your first treatment in the morning and the second one around 6:00 p.m.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Take care!
