RE: Sinusitis is worst with CPAP.
Update.
I got yesterday the Xylar and began with it. It is moving the stuff in my sinus and a little bit goes out. I must wait at least a week to see how really it goes. Any way, is something new for me because I have tried:

NASONEX 50MCG 2 SPRAYS/D
OXYMETAZOLINE HYDROCHLORIDE 0.05% 1/spray/day
VERAMYST 27.5 mcg/spray 2 SPRAYS BILATERAL/DAY
ALBUTEROL SULFATE 0.083% 1 SPRAY/D
ZETONNA 37mcg/PUFF 1 SPRAY/NOSTRIL
SINUS CLEANSE SALINE SOLUTION 1 SPRAY/D NASAL WASH
Flonase.
Azelastine HCL 137 MCG/L 2 SPRAYS BILATERAL, TWICE A DAY
Fluticasone Propionate 50 mcg 2 sprays bilateral/1 day.
BENZEDREX 2 PUFFS/DAY
If you read the components there are nothing new in all of them, there are different brands but they got the same components. After you try a few of them , if you change the spray , you are only changing the brand because the components are the same. The Xylar is different and now I am testing it.

-About the changes in the temperature and humidifier settings I will wait 2 or 3 weeks more, because I still really don't know what I am doing. I Understand very well your statements., that maybe are another setting that are better for me.
-I want to thank all of you because my Dr. is almost unreachable, I got the next appointment in 7 weeks and I feel alone. The only real relief valve that I got is this forum.
Ralph.
Note: I don't have any medical education or experience, I am only a newbie in this CPAP stuff in need of help.

RE: Sinusitis is worst with CPAP.
You could ask your ENT doctor about Pulmicort Nebuamp. The primary use of this is for Asthma, but my doctor has me doing a nasal rinse with it. For me the results have not been great, but it might be worth trying.

RE: Sinusitis is worst with CPAP.
You might want to try Astelin nasal spray. It's an anthistimine rather than steroidal.

I also recommend the NeilMed sinus rinse kit.

You may want to try a heated hose or hose insulation, or both. It will allow you to raise the humidity level higher.
