    Drugs for those with sleep apnea

    Curious, how many here use a CPAP and additionally use medication for wakefulness?
    Anyone have experience with Sunosi? It is being advertised a lot and supposedly not a stimulant.
    Makes we wonder if it is sort of like Modafinil.
    I have a CPAP I use religiously and occasionally I will take Modafinil for days I feel like I did not get quality sleep.
    I have to watch the dosage on modaf though because it gives me major cotton mouth and can make me feel lousy and nauseous if I take too much.

    I have horrible sleep apnea and also use a cpap machine. If I donít use it I canít even take a nap if I wanted to. I donít take any sleep meds besides melatonin here and there when needed tho.

    I use the CPAP nightly and use Adrafinil on occasion during the day when needed. Clean/long lasting energy, no crash or jitters, etc.

    My horrible but effective sleep protocol, cpap included:

    Melatonin 10mg
    Magnesium 250mg (simple, but important)
    Diphenhydramine 75mg (one and half pills OTC sleep aid)
    6-10g red kratom

    Stay awake protocol
    Caffeine drinks (coffee, pwo, etc) as needed
    2-3g of white or yellow kratom as needed

    JFC, thats a lot of shit, I have a CPAP but do not use it, they say I have sleep apena but I don't think I do, my doctor said I do because my neck is 18 inches and they find anything over 16 causes restricted air ways. Which is probalby eveyone on this forum. But he diagoised me over a telehealth call. I switch up between melitonin which I can sleep 5-6 hours and on non work nights I take two advil Pm and sleep 8 and can't drag myself out of bed because of the drug hang over....

    I suffer from insomnia and don't want to take the meds that make you do crazy shit while sleep walking. I tried some other rx stuff over the years, but it didn't help. So my "OTC plus all natural" protocol is fairly heavy. I had an old man moment this week and left my night time pills out on the cabinet and forgot to take them. I was wide awake in about 3 hrs that night. I made up for it by being at work before 4am and knocking off at noon.

    I woke three hours early 2 days ago and flipped back and forth between cnn and fox just to see the spin factor, ole reddog was quite the asshole that day,
    It's best that I sleep until the alarm goes off...

    What kind of mask do you use, I cannot find one that is comfortable and I feel like I sleep less when I wear my CPAP. I tried nose only cause I'm not a mouth breather and I tried the lower face mask that covers nose and mouth and can't get past 3-4 hours before I take it off...

    I'm getting like GSD, LOL...

    Nose only ones suck, imo. Fisher and Paykel Simplus is what I've been using, but I hear the Vitera is a little better and want to give it a try.

    I set mine to ramp up as long as possible (40 mins) so I have time to fall asleep before it starts blasting. It will usually still wake me up a couple of times every night and I have gotten use to hitting the off/on button a couple of times and restarting the ramp up process. When I first started using it, it took a few weeks to get used to it. Now that I'm used to it, I wouldn't sleep without it. Even the rare naps, I wear it. The sleep quality difference is night and day.

    Interesting, I left my ramp time at 5 minutes like they did when I got it and sometimes it would feel like I can't get air because its blasting me, also do you sleep on your back? I like to sleep on my side basically using a small pillow on my upper arm area and the mask does not let me get comfortable..

    Lol...first thing I did was set my ramp time to max! I'm a side sleeper, usually with arm under my pillow/head. I use a full size pillow and have zero problems with the full face mask. I find that gently leaning the mask *into* the pillow helps it seal better. Just a tiny bit of angle and a tiny bit of pressure makes a big difference in seal.
