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

New mouth device on the market

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?  See More

"Zollistar, filtered water should be fine. I'm lucky here in Australia you can buy a 2 litre bottle from the supermarket for $1.59 so I use that and it lasts me two weeks."

I thought I would give the Sleepweaver a try of at least a week (Fri)and hope I could adjust as some others have indicated things got better with time. I do have the Mirqge Quattro on standby together with a CPAPSeal gel liner. Unfortunately so far even that combination leaks. Becky is sending me some RemZzzs liners so perhaps they will assist with the Quattro.

Terry. My ramp up starts at 6.5 but the auto part is restricted to the 12.5 a 15 band. I may call my tech to adjust it today as I am having no luck with the Sleepweaver
Under these conditions.
