  • Effectiveness
    None (for Sleep Apnea Disorder)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 6 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: I tried this for a long time but it made falling asleep more difficult and even if I did use it for the full time I was sleeping, I didn't notice a change in my fatigue levels. I believe that my fatigue is mostly due to my Multiple Sclerosis so unfortunately the C-Pap had no effect for me.
