It does sound like "more" and others with experience in that are responding.

What jumped out at me as I read was the twice a day treatments. When dd was quite small and we were first learning to manage her asthma, she was admitted to the hospital three times. The breathing treatments were much needed but they drove her pulse rate up and her sleep was really impacted. Have you discussed any possible side effects of the treatments and a possible link to sleep disruption? Obviously they're needed meds but perhaps there's an adjustment or something that can offset it if there's a connection.
