What does everyone use to sleep when they have a cold?  Before SA I used Nyquil, now I'm a little leary of it b/c of the sedating effect.  Is it still okay to use?

If you have OSA, I suspect Nyquil would be okay to use. I sometimes take a mild sedative to get to sleep, although now that I'm re-learning how to sleep, I don't have to do this much any more.

If you have Central Sleep Apnea, maybe you should check with your doctor.

Anyone here able to offer reliable advice to Kristi?

Kristi, I am not a medical professional, but I think Nyquil in the prescribed dose would be fine to take for the short period of time you would need it during a cold.  I haven't had to take anything in a long time. 

Keep us posted on how you're doing.

I usually take sudafed.
