Hello. I'm new to the forum - just wondered if anyone has any ideas to help with calming the cough enough to sleep. I'm in the third chest infection in 4 months (on prednisolone and anti-bs). Unless I sit upright and stay awake, i start to cough badly. Ventolin does not seem to be touching it (up to 12 puffs now). I'm trying to let my husband get some sleep but could do with some myself too! I know mine is nothing compared to what many of you are putting up with and I'm sorry to moan on a first posting, but I'd really appreciate any tips.
