RE: drugs and cpap
You guys are the best. I am back to using tylenol so should have a better ahi from now on. All of a sudden 6.0 is looking good. I am thinking it takes a while for it to completely get out of your system. Tylenol shouldn't be a problem, right?

No, Tylenol should be fine. Glad the pain subsided!

When you get the chance, discuss this with your GP. Have a plan in place for if this happens again and you need pain medication again. There's a lot of different types out there now but docs tend to just use the same ones over and over. You and your GP can have alternatives in place so that the Great Specialist doesn't have to think, bless their hearts.

Great idea, Paula. Maybe I should give a call to my sleep doctor...

Never take a higher dose than prescribed or recommended on the container.

I think Tylenol (acetaminophen) can seriously harm the kidneys and liver if overused.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
