    How can I get a restful sleep
    Anon_227770 posted:
    When I try to sleep all I do is think, Its like my brain wont stop working,(kind of like turning a light bulb off & on ) My brain is always on!! It seems like Im awake all night. Help!! I have had a sleep study and they say I have Sleep apena. But I cant sleep with the cpap mask. I am 58 years old. Thank You .

    Have you tried any meds for anxiety, like xanax? That can help with sleep. I dont know however, how effective it would be if you are constantly awakened by the apnea. Talk to your doc or ask to see a specialist.

    It seems you have the same situation of my grandpa before. But his okay now. He used to take a health supplement that promotes sleep help and support for sleep disorders. You may asked your pharmacist about the supplement "MX 5-HTP". It really works on my grandpa! Promise!
