Anyone been officially diagnosed with mild apnea, tried CPAP and just couldn't tolerate any mask. Then, try a mouthpiece and have success?

No, mouthpiece wasnt effective... there is a MULTITUDE of masks... you get used to them, and once you start REALLY sleeping again, youll thank a Diety of your choice for them

Ive tried 3 masks and haven't found one yet. Willing to try again. I'm a mouth-breather, so the nasal pillows didn't give me enough air. I'm a side sleeper and the face masks either shift enough to lose the seal OR if I do fall asleep I sometimes drool juts a bit - and when you have that mask on, drool starts flying around and there is no drying it in the middle of the night.

I have slight apnea - nothing insane. But, my sleep doc said I would very likely feel better if I used a CPAP. I have tried absolutely everything for ED and libido and nothing has worked for 25 years.

Finding the right mask can be tough... take a look @ this one...


I'd also suggest try wearing the mask , disconnected , while you're watching TV of working on the computer... pretty soon you may find you're noticing it less and less.

Good luck

I snored pretty bad when starting injections and my doc thinks it raised my HCT. I tried a mouth piece and it worked, but it made my teeth hurt the next morning so I wasn't a huge fan to be honest. My snoring went away and my HCT lowered on it's own so i don't need to use the mouth piece any longer.

i tried the mouthpiece and it stopped my snoring and apnea however i started drooling and i developed a fungal infection (angular cheilitis) in the corner of my mouth. i then switched to dermal tape across my mouth and found it to work better and more comfortably.

Interesting. You tried a CPAP first and similar problems?

i did not try a CPAP first. i bought a wrist-wearable sleep monitor and began tracking my sleep. my girlfriend has told me that i snored. so the snoring and apnea led me to try a dental device first. it worked well save for the drooling. i then switched to the tape and was shocked that i could awake the next morning with no clue that i even have tape over my mouth until i ready try drink a cup of coffee.
