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'm wondering: what prompted you to consider whether you have sleep apnea in the first place?
Also, waking throughout the night isn't uncommon especially as we (*sigh*) age. I seem to every 90 minutes or so. This pattern probably…"
"You can try this website: http://zyppah.com/
I have a MAD (mandibular advancement device). Dr. Steven Park evaluated my mouth and throat (not everyone can use a MAD, it turns out) and pronounced me a candidate for it.
The truth? I…"
"The link didn't work so me so I couldn't see the product. I do have experience with a supposedly reliable boil and bite device. I should know by now I have a small mouth and nothing regular size fits. I don't think…"
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've been hearing advertising for this product over the past few days. It's sold as something to help snoring, but as I look at the information it seems to me that it would work just as well as my mandibular advancement device (MAD).In other words, this could help some of us with sleep apnea.Read about it here.Anybody have any thoughts about this?

I haven't been on this site for a long time but I'm so happy I clicked on the Sleep Guide email that came in today. This information is wonderful! I work on a laptop day and night! Until seconds before I go to bed, and have been…"
"My RLS is horrible. I'm currently taking Mirapex (Pramipexole) but it's now that effective. I want to try Ropinirole (Requip) which is what you take... I'm hoping that helps. RLS is a NIGHTMARE. It is an awful feeling and it leaves me…"
"My mask is a "small". So I think the size is okay, although I really don't have anything to compare it to. I would think that leaking, when it comes to mask size, would be a result of a mask that is too big. Since my is small and fits…"
"I'm going to try this Quietus Liner. I keep repositioning my Quatro FX to stop leaking, but it always starts again in the middle of the night since it moves around when I lay sideways. Anyway, I hope these liners work. Thanks for the tip."
"All - I have the solution. Because it's summer, and hot, the HUMIDITY setting should be set to ZERO. Once I did that, the heat plate did not heat up. Yai!! Also, I was told there is no need to put water in the container."
"Hi Linda - Sorry to say but I have really bad RLS (restless legs syndrome) and the CPAP machine does not help. My sleep clinic doctor prescribed another medication for the RLS which helped a tiny little bit but not that much. RLS is about the worse…"
Hi All, I need help. I've only had this machine for 2 months. I use it at level 12, as prescribed by my Sleep Study Doctor and have not had any problems with it since raising the level to 12. Two nights ago I noticed that the water chamber (and the water) was pretty warm but didn't pay any attention. Last…See More
