Do sleep aids effect sleep study results
RE: Do sleep aids effect sleep study results
Here's one where I did not take the pill, woke up and couldn't get back to sleep until I did take 4 mg of Ambien  (I cut down my 10mg pills).

RE: Do sleep aids effect sleep study results
I am not an expert , like you cut half ambient to use for go back to sleep. 
I also tried Melatonin 10 mg bought at Costco, felt in sleep with in an hour but wake up after an hour or so. A friend told me I have to use at least a week or so to get the effect. I will put my result with and without pill, hopefully soon. 

Here I found 

First part is with Melatonin, Second part is with Ambient. I was in hospital with my mom that night, on bed at 5 Am, and this is my first time of trying Melatonin 10 mg. I am sure because of timing and all things may be not say thing clearly.
Most junkie shown are Central airleak because of wake up. Big air leak appeared because I did not attached the tube into my full mask. What's an old guy huh?

Here is last night result , not ambient but Gabapentin 300 mg, sleep like a baby.
Not intend to go deeper about sleepy pill, I hope some one more knowledge give their inputs on this topic which is yes or no to take pill when doing sleep study, or do both in sleep study .
