I can see it now. Group therapy in Rehab for HoseHeads. Everyone sitting around with their respective masks and hoses dangling from their respective faces - but no CPAP machines. "Hello, my name is MAPnea and I'm addicted to breathing while I sleep….." Dielaughing

RE: Prescriptions For CPAP Supplies
Thank you for all the responses. I had my cardiologist write me one today. This is the second of three (excluding the first) that he has written. He made a comment something to the effect he may not be able to write anymore citing it has been 4 years since I had a sleep study. UGGGGGGGH!

To err is human, but to really mess things up, you need a computer.

Has to be a doctor in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge who'll write an Rx for you.
