Benzodiazepine [Possible affects with Sleep Apnea]
#11
RE: Benzodiazepine [Possible affects with Sleep Apnea]
Tranquilizers (and opiates) may cause sufficient sedation that they can depress the respiratory drive. You will want to speak with your providers about that in case adjustments to your CPAP are needed to compensate for that.
