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

I have tried almost every type of face mask. Including just the nostril one-hated it. I breath thru nose and mouth. The full face Mask ResMed Mirage Quattro provides the most comfort for me. My Porblem-I use night creams due to trying to reduce lines and wrinkles around my eyes and face-VAIN. I know, I have been told and read numerious articles saying don't do that! Will cause leaks-it does. Will break down the stuff that seals to my face. It does. But I can't take the increasing lines the mask causes on the sides of my face and I am noticing a lot more under eye wrinkles dark circles and puffy eyes. I am in my 50's- Usto look in my 30's- Until March this year Apena. I am trying to research this problem-Does anyone know if I can try sleeping with a night eye mask or full face mask,then placing my CPAP mask over that? I just purchased an eye mask from a company called Talika-gonna try it tonite. There's gotta be a solution out there- I refuse to give up my wrinkle creams they have worked for years. I would rather stop breathing. Any suggestions out there?

Kathleen
Cindy,
Thanks! This one looks interesting. I know my creams are a big no-no-and can destroy the seals, I just gotta keep my looks! but this one may be possible to ware the Talika wrinkle eye mask that I have -the wrinkle treatment is covered with a cloth material that should not affect the mask- I'm gonna call/email them-just to let them know what I'm doing. There site does say don't clean with moisturisers, but I don't see anything yet about using night creams.--you guys are great. I promise! When I find the cure you all will know I'm loving the help! Truley-your great- I will spread your site to my local supplier-Medi Home Care and my sleep center too- I will let them know- Don't give it up Sign up with you guys! Thanks again! keep the help comming!
I have switched to an entirely different skin care process.....and I LOVE it. Right after starting with my APAP, I ran into this product on a weekend trip and when I discovered that this regimine requires you to not use night cream....I had to try it since I couldn't use night cream anymore. I got the

Skip the night cream; your skin will thank you.
While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities. Regular application of night creams interferes with these essential tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Covering the skin with moisturizer 24 hours a day sends a signal to sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in even drier skin that becomes dependent on moisturizing products just to appear “normal.”
This site sounds interesting. I will have to contact them. Since February this year I became Anaphylaxis to shellfish. Yep- my favorite foods in life now can kill me- almost did. Not only eatting them but also any product containing Glucosamine-I can't ware or injest.-Growing old gracefully-Really?- and now apena? This stinks!-After month of research I can only ware some Bare Minerals makeup products and my skin care is still Signature Club A-meltdown cleansing cream and 5 essentials creme face and eyes day and night creme.-These 2 companies spent hours with me researching the product ingredents. February every product I owned went in the trash. For example-Oil of Olay-and even shampoos and bath soaps. I have to research everything I do now including the gel on the CPAP mask. So-last night I only used my face cleansing creme-skipped the night creme-cut up an old silk pillow case-padded the forehead and sides of my face-looked very funny but was a bit more comfortable this morning-got the idea from Dan's suggestion website-padacheek- still puffy eyes-but the side indentations on my face not as severe. The bridge of my nose not as sore and red-hum- T'm really leaning toward the fitlife full face mask-and finding some kind of eye mask to prevent dry eyes-Thanks again-I really appreciate all your help

Hello Kathleen ~

Another product you might want to check out is at this website: www.remzzzs.com

I had the same issue with line forming. I was going for Botox injections. Before I did this I was shown the fit life full face mask. Wow I was shocked it covered the eyes as well. This looked like the Old style mask that was glass and covered face. Didn’t want to think about it being claustrophobic. With reluctance tried it. Amazing! It didn’t dry my eyes and the lines have almost gone away. I sleep better for sure.
I test many mask but keep going back to the fit life for general use.
I have issues with air going into my eyes - even small amounts seem to aggrevate them. Wouldn't this mask have air going all over your eyes? I would appreciate any input as my eyes are driving me mad!
