:?: Back to Back Albuterol In Neb = wired? How to sleep ?

Question I had a bad attack yesterday and did a neb treatment, didn't raise peak flows anymore, so I called the on call doc in my practice and he said, do another one or two and that should help. Holy Smokes. I've been awake for 36 hours and counting. I did go to the ER and they gave me something by neb that worked a little but I'm still awake. I don't do drugs or anything like this. The doc warned me that the albuterol may make me a little awake and raise my heart rate but this is ridiculous! Any suggestions on falling asleep!?
