post nasal drip. Have you been diagnosed with asthma? If you have been & you have a daily attack - then your asthma is not well controlled. At this point I would seek medical attention to get this under tighter control. Take care.

I would suggest pillow and mattress covers and keeping the bedroom including flooring thoroughly clean. Timing your dose of Albuterol before bedtime and taking the asthma control test online will help determine the next step. An online consult can be made online healthtap.com/DosanjhMD Code: NCYHPZ
