Asthma Meds Could Increase Sleep Apnoea Risk

In a new but small study, researchers discovered that taking certain asthma medications could increase one's risk of sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is a sleeping disorder that causes people to experience pauses in their breathing patterns during sleep. In this study, the participants were taking 1,760 micrograms of the treatment, flucticasone (Flovent), which is inhaled. The researchers examined the participants for any changes in how their upper airways and tongue functioned during sleep. The researchers found that all 18 of them had changes to these two specific areas that were similar to sleep apnoea.
