Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well! When did you start noticing a difference in your sleep quality and over all quality of life with your CPAP? Was it more or less immediate, or did it take some time to start feeling better?

I started with A cpap machine. Tried it for about a year could not get used to it. So my doctor prescribed a bipap machine which is much better. But I still hate it. And my problem is I cant fall asleep and when I do I only sleep a few hours. So he prescribed a sleep aid. Ambien and Xanax. I can sleep 7 or 8 hours a night if I take these. But I don’t like taking medication to sleep. Does anyone else have this problem?

@Nellie1954 I took ambien for almost 1 year when I first started.  Now every once in a while I took an over the counter sleeping aide, but don't need it very often.
