I have been on Bipap for 8 months. I sleep pretty good with it but still feel very tired. I have been using it every night usually about 6 hours and they take off when go to bathroom but don't put it back on. I have tried it both ways on after I get up and off. Feeling very frustrated. Anyone have this problem. I slept with out Bipap last night and feel horrible.

Hi StrightforwardByzantiumSpider6466. Feeling tired on treatment is a complaint many patients have. I encourage you to talk to your doctor about other factors that may be contributing to your tiredness (medications, other illnesses, etc.). If you can tolerate putting your mask back on after going back to bed, it is always a good idea to wear your treatment whenever you sleep. This includes napping during the daytime. Symptoms of sleep apnea are usually present anytime we fall asleep and are not wearing our treatment. Best wishes, and I hope your tiredness improves!
