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…"

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 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
