Still dozing with cpap

I've been using my cpap for about seven years...I still doze off numerous times at work...sitting, standing whatever. This gets me so upset and depressed I can't stand it. I use a chin strap, my mouth is still so dry. Cpap has humidifier. I just want to feel normal again. I've been on provigil, nuvigil, aderall, Ritalin....those helped except I'm allergic! Sometimes I feel I'm at the end of my rope....I could just scream...instead I cry...hence Zoloft... Actually I was told by my neorologist that there really isn't anything else to try. Any tips, tricks to make this a little less frustrating. Thanks

I had the same problem with my mouth opening up. I just HAD to slowly increase wearing it for small amounts of time to get used to the full face mask. If you really want to make this work; you need to try different masks also, to see which one you like best. I go through Liberty by mail.They work with my Dr. and my insurance. And they let me try different masks and send back the ones that didn't fit my face right. They also have specialists that help figure out what's wrong. Hope this helps!
