Help needed with CPAP therapy

However i now have hundreds of microarousals a night. The base dose for doxepin is 40mg i take 5mg, id try cutting down on mirtazapine(remeron) in your case, its a very strong sleeping pill. Ten times stronger then doxepin. If I take the minimum recommended dose of 40mg I start to choke at night. Maybe theres something similar for you happening there.

It seems like you have a good point there. I have noticed that I have more snores/issues with Remeron than anything else. I tried other sleep aids (klonopin) and I feel better with those next morning but cannot continue those long term as they are addictive. I will try to check with my doctor if he can prescribe me doxepin.

RE: Help needed with CPAP therapy
My doctor asked me to switch to klonopin .5mg and my sleep has improved quite a bit in last couple of days.

I was told by my PCP that I cannot be on Klonopin for long so I have couple of weeks to find other ways. Hopefully, I will taper it off and check if I can sleep without any meds.
