I'm finding myself in a bit of a catch-22 : when I am really having trouble with my asthma I tend to be very tired and sleepy and have trouble dragging myself out of bed to take medicines at specific times. Sometimes this also happens when I crash with exhaustion after a good day where I've been able to go out and get a few things done.
Obviously this is a problem because this is the point where I can least afford a delayed or missed dose.
I'm on basically everything and its all a bit complicated – there's a lot more to this than just popping pills:
[*]AM & PM : seretide with a pre-treatment of ventolin with the nebulizer in hopes of getting more ICS into where it belongs.
AM: Lorstein, Prednisone (with food – which means I need to make breakfast first) , nasal spray
PRN: Ventolin either via neb or inhaler.
Last night, my husband agreed to nag me so I could take my evening dose of seretide, which is huge because I'm very hard to wake up and he doesn't enjoy pestering.
I'm wondering if anyone has some practical solutions for this that have worked for them.
