  • Effectiveness
    Major (for sleep apnea disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (dry mouth, dry eyes, dry sinus)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 8 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: Many people have trouble with adherence to using their CPAP because of the negative feelings and appearances when it's in use. I got over that so quickly because I realized (through a fitness band) that as soon as I began using my CPAP I got dramatically more REM sleep. This, in turn, helped me tremendously with my cognitive problems. My family and friends quickly saw that I was having fewer memory problems and was mentally sharper. I will ALWAYS use my CPAP
