In brief: First...

The first thing you need to make sure about is that you have a rescue inhaler(albuterol for example) in order to deal with events.
If they are becoming very frequent you will need an inhaled steroid which will keep the inflammation associated with asthma under control. In order to get those you will need to see your doctor. If you experience significant trouble breathing you need to go to the ER.

In brief: Depends on cause

Not all nocturnal asthma symptoms are cause by Asthma.
Other conditions like GERD, COPD, obstructive sleep apnea, heart failure can cause Nocturnal Asthma. Work with your doctor. For simple Asthma, ICS (inhaled corticosteroids) and SABAs (short acting agonists) occasionally LABAs (Long acting beta agonists) are used. Also make sure allergies are controlled. Good luck !
