5 Tips for Better Sleep with COPD

There are a number of steps you can take to help you get a good night's sleep if you have COPD. They include:

  • Adjust COPD medications: After assessing your symptoms and sleeping complaints, your doctor may be able to adjust your medications so that you will sleep better. For instance, when you are getting the optimal dosage of bronchodilator therapy, you will be able to breathe easier at night while you sleep. Never make changes to your medications without first consulting your doctor.

  • Add oxygen therapy: Night time oxygen therapy can sometimes make it easier for you to sleep. Most people purchase a home oxygen concentrator to keep by their beds. 
  • Try sleep medications: Your doctor may prescribe a sleep medication that will help you sleep better. If you have COPD, always consult your doctor first before taking a sleep medication. You might consider picking up some Melatonin. Supplemental melatonin is a natural way to help to promote more normal, restful sleep. We also suggest Pure Essential Lavender Oil a few drops in a warm bath, or several spritz with some lavender pillow spray has been known to work wonders. Always consult your doctor before adding any additional supplements to your daily intake.

  • Practice airway clearance techniques: Your doctor or respiratory therapist can teach you airway clearance techniques that may help you sleep better.
