  • I have asthma and have a few kids who have it. If she is having a flare up or is on medication then it could make her quite tired. Flare ups are exhausting bc so much energy is used for them to breathe. Some of the meds can make them hyper or tired. What medicines is she taking?

  • Definitely call the dr first thing in the morning then. If she is working that hard to breathe that it is exhausting her then she needs seen. It could also be something entirely different so insist on her being seen.

  • My child has asthma too.. and at first she slept really long too but once she gets on med's n it regulates her breathing and opens her air ways it will be better
