Weight loss prescriptions for sleep apnea??
Recommendations for weight loss are common, but has anyone had a sleep dr prescribe one of the new weight loss drugs?

RE: Weight loss prescriptions for sleep apnea??
the FDA hasn't approved it for sleep apnea yet, prescription would be premature?

it was one study by the drug maker itself which hasn't even been peer reviewed as far as i can tell.

He also says this, 
Quote:In an accompanying editorial, Dr. Sanjay Patel, a sleep medicine specialist at the University of Pittsburgh, cautioned that whether tirzepatide can treat sleep apnea in real-world patients “remains unclear” because of the way improvement is measured.
Great if it works but it's still early.
