There is a new therapy for sleep apnea. I have used it for nearly 5 years. It is an Inspire implant that works wonderfully. I have severe sleep apnea and used CPAP for years. It helped some, but does not compare to the Inspire Therapy

Sorry, didn't mean to post it yet - check out inspiresleep.com, you'll be glad you did. It is FDA approved and insurance companies are paying,.

Hi @UnderstandingRedNarwhal3345 (Fausto). Medications often make people feel very tired. Fatigue can be an unfortunate side-effect of many prescription medications, and your physician may be able to help you manage this. For you sleep apnea, is your treatment being monitored? It is important to understand whether your nightly treatment is controlling your sleep apnea. Best wishes!

I would encourage you to do some research. Look at a reputable site for ALL side-effects of the medications you take. Discuss these with your doctor and if you find that one could be causing problems, see if there is an alternative. I can't tell if you are male or female and what your age is. Gender and age could also factor into your feelings of hot and cold, fatigue and lack of concentration. Educate yourself the best you can about your condition and talk more to your doctor, especially if the medication side-effects can be ruled out.
