Questions About Sleep Apnea

If I Stop Snoring, Does That Mean I Don't Have Sleep Apnea Any More?

No. Sleep apnea treatments may help you stop snoring. However, stopping snoring does not mean that you no longer have sleep apnea or that you can stop the CPAP.
 

I Was Just Diagnosed With Sleep Apnea. What Should I Do?

The instructions listed below can help make living with sleep apnea easier:
 
  • Follow your doctor's directions for sleep apnea treatment
  • Follow up with your doctor to make sure your treatment is working
  • Do not drink alcohol or take medications that make you sleepy before going to bed
  • Sleep on your side instead of your back
  • Lose weight if you are overweight

If you have a mild case of sleep apnea and follow these instructions, you may not need CPAP.
