Do you still snore when wearing it? How often do you need to replace the mask?

Do you wear it every night or take breaks?

im seeing my pulmonary dr. today because I still snore when I wear it and the mask gets loose every single month!!! I even tighten the straps to where I have marks on my face in the morning! ugh! I'm over it.

the only way I feel i have a good nights sleep is when I take an advil pm every night. I've been on cpap for a year.

UPDATE: she gave me great suggestions and i will be in a support type group with other cpap users in oct. and 2 sleep disorder techs will be there to answer questions and give us tips.

That sounds pretty uncomfortable. I don't use one but your post prompted me to wonder about my 29 year old son who went on one a month ago. I hope your doctor can help with some solutions.

I've used one for over 10 yrs and it takes time and patience to find the right mask wit the right fit.

I so still snore some with it but my problem was I completely stopped breathing when I sleep. I can't sleep without it and am so used to it I couldn't if I tried.

Maybe you could speak with the Doc who prescribed it to see if they have any suggestions.

Maybe you need a mouth guard, or have you already done that.
