Dr. Park--first let me say how much it means to us that you take so much time and interest working with It's an unbelievable confidence-builder, certainly for me anyway. I've signed up for my second teleconference and am looking forward to it!

I just posted an SG comment re: the extreme nasal and sinus difficulty I had initially on CPAP with just totally intense dryness. I've now resolved that issue with nightly, high # humidification. However, my take on what happened to me (now) is that it was because of several cardiac medications I take which are extremely drying to my body in general. What ideas do you have re: the impact of these types of strong medications with regard to nasal/sinus sensitivity to CPAP? I haven't heard anyone talking about this except myself, and I'm no expert. I DO however, have a great deal of experience with my own body in trying to handle nearly devastating drying effects to my own body that was, and is clearly related to Rx heart meds I take daily. I wrote more detail on my SG comment today, so I won't go into the whole thing here. I'm just wondering what your take is on Rx chemicals contributing to unbearable dryness after initiation to CPAP. Thanks for your consideration.
