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

I downloaded the clinicians manual that you posted for the SleepStyle 600, but it appears to be missing the last page (A-6). I am interested in finding a guide to the error codes that the unit generates (I am getting an E32). Thanks for your help.

I know. And I almost feel ashamed riling Rock Hinkle. He is such a GREAT guy and such an asset to this forum! And I was so pleased w/Cindy Brown's comments. Actually, all of the comments, come to think of it. There is so much to be said in favor of each viewpoint. We've really go some great people and great pros in this forum!!!

Now, now, Dan! You and I know that. BUT the post "was" aimed at sleep professionals. *wicked grin*

Really kind of unfair of me to put "our" GOOD sleep pros on the spot but like I said, I'm feeling crochety this morning.

Dan, having worked in the mental health/healthcare system for many years, I'm sorry to say that, for the most part, I agree with you. It's a sad commentary of this wonderful country of ours.

Glad to have your input--I hadn't remade this connection re: DME till I got your message. Forgot they work for ME, not the other way around.
