I am using the CPAP, with the dynamic variable pressure when I inhale and exhale. I find I used to sleep 8.5 hrs and now I may sleep only half that or less. I have too much energy and find it hard to get to bed at a decent hour. I find I am often excessively talkative and really over-stimulated with the CPAP. How do I moderate my energy level??

Hi @ModestCeruleanCat5596. While patients treated with CPAP can experience a decrease in fatigue and an increase in energy, the symptoms you describe are usually not related to CPAP use. There are other factors that may contribute to the increase in activity you describe, such as medications, caffeine or other medical conditions. Have you discussed these changes with your physician? If not, I encourage you to do so. Good luck, and welcome to the MyApnea.Org forums!
