Melatonin + CPAP = Success
#1
Melatonin + CPAP = Success
I very rarely take melatonin but took it Friday night. Woke up to feeling incredibly refreshed, having dreams that I could recall and being alert immediately.

Turns out, my CPAP data agrees and this is nearly the lowest I've achieved so far. After my first post I experimented with EPR as suggested but came back to no EPR until now. Might try an EPR of 1 tonight to see if I can get AHI even lower. Pretty incredible to sleep almost 8hrs and have an AHI below 2! The best part is I repeated these results the next two days as well. Turns out there's been a study on this and I've e-mailed the doctor asking to see the results of their clinical trial.

RE: Melatonin + CPAP = Success
Thanks for posting this, gainerfull. I have taken a 5mg timed-release Melatonin each night for years. I had a sleep problem--going to sleep and staying asleep--when I started CPAP in September 2015. I hardly slept for weeks after CPAP, and my doctor suggested it. It works very well for me. As we age, melatonin drops--I am now 81 and depend on it.

RE: Melatonin + CPAP = Success
Melatonin cleans me up after every five days or so of between 5-6 hours of sleep nightly.  I try not to use it often so that it retains its potency on my system.

Incidentally, it's supposed to be the single most powerful antioxidant we can ingest.
