Hello I have pneumonia and I keep on coughing when I head to sleep its very annoying what can I take. (I'm not coughing up anything)?
Need more info: Did you already see a doctor who diagnosed this? Are you taking an antibiotic? If you have already been officially diagnosed, then you should discuss this with your doctor. Some over-the-counter medicines like Robitussin (guaifenesin) may provide some relief. If not for you, then prescription meds are helpful, but you would need to see a doctor for this. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
My chest hurts when trying to sleep with Pneumonia... Is there something I can do to minimize the pain just for tonight?

Med interactions: You need to re-cjheck with an internist Re: all meds interactions. Your remicade (infliximab) puts you at risk for infections (like pneumonias) and blood in stool might be assoc.

My daughter is 5 and has pneumonia She's doing much better and no fever but she's sleeping a lot She never takes naps is this norm or is it the meds?
She needs rest: Recovering from pneumonia is often prolonged. Children and adults may be very fatigued and feel weak for weeks to months after the pneumonia. Read the labels of all the medications she is taking and see if any of these may cause drowsiness. If you find that it the case, consider the potential risks and benefits of the medication and if you are uncertain talk to her doctor. Push fluids.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I take an Ambien (zolpidem) after taking benzonatate Mucinex and levofloxacin? I have pneumonia an can't sleep.
Yes: Should be fine. Is your sleeplessness due to cough? Benzonatate is an absolutely useless cough suppressant. If the cough is what is keeping you up at night then a better cough suppressant like Codeine or hydrocodone syrup may be a better option. Contact the prescribing doctor and let them know the tessalon is not working.

It takes a while: For pneumonia symptoms to get better. I would not expect a great improvement on day 4 of antibiotics. Are you sleeping with a cool mist humidifier? Guiafenesin with dextromorphan will help the cough as will honey in water with lemon juice. If not improving any after 7 days go back to dr.
I have a cough and have started moaning as I fall asleep. I've only ever done when I had pneumonia around 18 months ago. Should I be concerned?
Possibly: But cannot diagnose you over the internet. If you are feeling poorly it never hurts to get somebody to examine you. On the other hand, if you have no other symptoms (fever, chills, shortness of breath, chest pain, etc.) it is not likely that this is pneumonia (although atypical pneumonias do occur). Go and see a doctor.
