Coughing is a sudden, noisy, and often repetitively occurring reflex which helps to clear the large breathing passages from secretions like mucus and phlegm, irritants, and foreign particles. Nighttime coughing is a coughing fit that persists in the evening, interrupting sleep.

The need to clear phlegm 9/12/2015 at 01:23 AM

Usually it has to be trggered by something, like cold air, moisture, dust, humid air, anyone smoking around... I always take my corticosteroids when going to sleep and make sure my window is closed and my place is clean. So I don't cough much at night if I'm not in someone elses house that doesn't watch out for things as much as I do.3/27/2012 at 02:54 AM

This is one of the most frustrating parts on asthma. I get all comfy in my bed and just start to drop off and WHAM a cough attack. Once it starts in usually takes 10 to 15 minutes for it to stop. By then I'm awake and it takes me forever to get back to sleep again. Its kind of like having cold water thrown on you when you are sound asleep. Or worse yet, its in the middle of the night - again I'm sound asleep and wake up to a coughing fit. Depending on what time it is, sometimes I never really go back to sleep. I just kind of dose for the rest of the night. I wake up just as tired as I was when I went to bed.2/12/2012 at 02:06 PM
