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

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.

Ah, yes, the Good 'Ol Days, ha ha
btw, I still have Senator Levin's picture taped up. I think he's retiring? Are you still on cpaptalk? I haven't been there in years!
And how much snow are YOU getting, ha ha. Oh, my goodness, you'd think He would spread it out some, rather than dumping it all at once, ha ha.
Hope you are doing well - you sound like it. Good job, ha ha.
Don't you think 'my' roller coaster avatar is well-suited to sleep apnea?
Take care now.
