I'm a newbie to the forum but not to sleep apnea or CPAP. I had been diagnosed with OSA in 2004 and have been using a CPAP every night (12 cm flat) since then. For the first few years, it had been a life saver. But due to insurance and job changes, things went on cruise control for the last 3-4 years. Slowly, my sleep had been trending worse and of late, I had been feeling as tired and un-rested as I used to feel before 2004. I hadn't been changing my mask/nasal pillows regularly as well.
Additionally, over the years I was diagnosed with ADHD and Depression and have been taking Vyvanse and Cymbalta for those, respectively. For sleep, I had been taking Ambien 10 mg and Melatonin at bed time.
In the last month, I decided to get a new CPAP device (Airsense 10) and thanks to this wonderful site, I have been able to gather some useful nightly sleep data and analyze it using the SleepyHead software.
The bad news is that I still have difficulty staying asleep most nights and pretty much feel groggy and hard to wake up in the morning. Due to school starting again, I need to wake up at 6 AM to get my kids ready.
I have about 15 days of data and my AHI has been ~2 nightly, with 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. Leak rate has been less than 15.
What else could be going on? Any hints? Thanks
