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!
