Doctor can examine: An asthma patient may need more doses of asthma medication or a second medication, or just fine-tuning of her asthma meds. If the doctor feels there is bronchitis or pneumonia, an antibiotic may be needed.

Dry throat and mouth and no saliva to swallow and cough only at night and take zestril (lisinopril). I take ranitidine at hs. What is wrong?
Night cough: Your cough at night may be a symptom of gerd. I would stop the zestril (lisinopril) for 2 days. If the cough is still present, it is not due to it and re-start it. I would then stop the ranitidine and start prilosec, or a similar drug to see if your cough abates. Cough is not an infrequent presentation of gerd. If you cough goes away after stopping zestril (lisinopril), see your doctor about starting another med for bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

All of these could be indicators that the infection is not controlled, but that would depend on the nature of the infection and how long you've been on treatment. ...Read more

Achy shoulders and hips. Especially at night. I take simvastatin, B6, and aspirin 81 MG at night. Could it be from the statin?
Could be: Statins are known to cause Myalgias aka muscle pain.
