Not sure if this is coincidence or if is anything to do with ventolin, but over the last week or so, i have had to get up during the night, sometimes twice a night to go for a wee.
I've hardly ever had to do this, i normally go the whole night without having to go.
I have been suffering from a chest infection and am currently on Clarithromycin 500mg twice daily, am also taking 40mg of steroids daily. I am on Atrovent 20mg 2 puffs 4 times daily, Symbicort 200/6 2 puffs twice daily (although not been able to take for nearly a week as i can not take a deep enough breath to inhale the powder) and ventolin. I have been having to use my ventolin lots as i keep having asthma attacks, think it is a mixture of weather related and to do with the chest infection. Before i go bed i take 10 puffs, otherwise i wake up coughing during the night, G.P says this is fine.
Could it be the ventolin causing me to wake up during the night, i do have kidney problems and have to take furosemide 40 mg daily as i do not wee enough and fluid builds up.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated, i would feel daft going to the doctors, just because i keep waking up to go to the loo, but i do need my sleep.
