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

Ellen, I think your doing the right thing by giving the sleepwwaever a go then trying the Mirage, let me know how you go with the Mirage and liners because that's what I'm using.

Ellen, I don't want to tell youwhat your settings should be but it sounds like 6-15.5 is right. I still think at 15.5 it will blow your sleep weaver off (all most). I see in your profile you have or have used the Resmed Mirage Quattro, why not try it again?

Ellen,

I looked for your email, but I did not end up getting one!!!  Did you email me at: social@remzzzs.com?  I am looking forward to being able to help you in ANY way that I can!  :O)

Glad to be of help.  I think if a 'newbie' was presented with the FitLife then that would be very off-putting, but when people have tried everything (like I had) then they're willing to try anything.  Like I said, I only intended using it after my nose surgery, never dreaming I'd end up using it every night.  The secret is to sleep on the edge of your pillow so the mask overhangs, but we are bringing out a pillow soon to help with these problems.  I'm currently sleeping on the prototype with a lot of success :)

RemZzzs does now offer both Kits and free Samples of our FitLife Liner.  Please email: social@remzzzs.com if you are interested in a free sample!!

The amazing thing Ellen, is that it doesn't blow in your eyes.  Here in the UK we've sold them to people who suffer from dry eyes and other eye conditions, and the FitLife hasn't made things any worse - in fact people have commented it's actually better, as they don't get the horrendous blast in their eyes from the conventional masks when they leak.  As with all masks, you do have to tweak them to work for you, but nothing's perfect as it's not exactly 'normal' to be wearing a mask whilst sleeping..

Take a look at the 2 reviews we got on the website (we've only been selling them a short while). http://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/products/44

Your best bet would be to see if you can try one over there.

Ellen, on behalf of the SleepGuide Crew I welcome you to the forum.  We're glad to have you.  It's good you're already posting.  I hope you can find the right mask.

Mary Z.
