253 Spontaneous Arousals in one night?
Possible UARS (Upper Airway Resistive Syndrome)? Depending on when in the study things were going on and the pressure, it may be a possibility worth checking into. I only say this as during my sleep study I had ~50 sleep disruptions (but not long enough issues in breating to count as apnea events) per hour, but only an AHI of 6....x6 hrs = ~300 disruptions in a night...and the final verdict for me was UARS.

Xanax can make you sleep but it is usually for a short period of time. I heard people say they took 4 or more at night to sleep. Not something I would do because it would kick my fanny. YMMV
Lavender gel caps might help you with the anxiety but you should always check with your doctor to make sure it doesn't interact negatively with your other medications.

I the sleep lab environment I would expect a lot of arousals unless you
do that for a living.

I am on a low dose of Clonazepam, and I was told that Hydroxyzine is more anticholengeric, and therefore more dangerous if you have complex sleep apnea. Is this true?

Hydroxyzine is one of the first generation antihistamines and they all have strong anticholergenic effects, which accounts for their frequent use as sedatives. Whether or not this is good or bad for complex sleep apnea is not something I know.
The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

Every time I see this thread, I HAVE to chuckle!!!
Sorry, I'm just an old curmudgeon.
Sleep is worth the effort.

Quote:...I'd better place a clock near me when this happens because I do recall thinking that the night was over but felt tired, and, as so many do, went back to sleep until about 7 to 7:30 am without the mask. I had 'thought' that it was much later in the morning, so would just 'nap' a bit. Yeah, right.
A little sidebar here:
Getting the time when you are awake is something we all want, and maybe more important when dealing with sleep disturbance issues.
Radio Shack (remember them?) used to sell a little talking clock; push the button, and Stephen Hawking or someone that sounds like him tells you what time it is. I wore out two of them over 30 years until they stopped making them.
But there is a free app! Download VOX Clock (coincidentally, similarly named to the RatShack physical cube clock from the 80's), and just keep your phone or iPad plugged in and near the bed, touch the screen briefly as you reach out in the darkness without your specs, and a girl with a European accent either tells you the time, or whispers it to you.

I have been using the Amara View for a week. I tried it due to the pressure the Simplus put on the soft tissue under my eyes. The puffiness under my eyes is reduced. The Amara View is a little more finicky to keep from leaking. I have had to adjust the attachment straps a couple of times at night during the week. Since I have to use the small version, it puts more pressure on my lower teeth. To minimize that, I have to keep the lower straps only as tight as necessary. The small size is very nice. I expect that it will be more comfortable as I become accustomed to using it.
