CPAP & Dry Mouth

In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad. Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?Thanks in advance,DanSee More

CPAP - cure worse than the disease

It's ironic that before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2000, I had no problem sleeping 8-9 hours a night. If I did wake up during the night, I had no problem falling right back to sleep, and I wasn't tired during the day.From the first night I brought home the CPAP I haven't had one decent night's sleep. Not one. I don't have any problem falling asleep, but I can't stay asleep. At first I was waking up after 4-5 hours and couldn't get back to sleep for a couple of hours. Now it's more like…See More

There are a few things you can do to increase success with your treatment. Sleeping on your side, Elevating your head and shoulders may help. If you have weight issues, be sure and address them with your physician as soon as possible. Just 10 pounds can increase apnea events. The use of alcohol as well could be a problem. Talk to your Physician about the medications that you are currently using.

Do you have high blood pressure? If so, be sure you take your medication as directed. Decrease salt intake. Slat increases fluid load and may cause some swelling in throat tissue adding to obstruction events. Please feel free to send me private message and we can talk more about these problems.
