Not known: Insomnia is a possible less serious side effect as described by some research participants when studying this drug. The exact causative mechanism of action regarding this side effect is unknown.

Side effects: Dulcera is a combination asthma medication. Both components can possibly adversely effect your sleep hygiene. The LABA component can cause nervousness or irregular heartbeats and the steroid component is well known to increase agitation in some patients.

Tell your Dr.: If the side effect is unbearable and intolerable, then your Dr. may need to change it to a different medication. If it helps you and you really need it, then you may meed help with the insomnia. Best wishes.
