I Just began CPAP 3 days ago and find myself very tired next day ... Is this something that is typical when starting out ? I wore the equipment all night but not sure why this is occurring

Hi @PowerfulRubyGrasshopper4202. Some patients do find that it takes time to adjust to wearing CPAP, and others report feeling better almost immediately. I suggest tracking your level of fatigue over the next couple of weeks to see if it improves. Also, there are other things that can contribute to feeling tired, such as medication or other sleep disturbances (noise, pets, etc.). If you continue to use your CPAP consistently and do not feel your level of tiredness improving, I encourage you to speak to your home care company to make sure the machine setting or correct, and/or speak to your physician about other things that may be contributing to how you feel. Best wishes!
