Since I've been feeling better, I've been in here less because I've been out DOING more! LOL!
Lub's right...the bipap and the Adapt SV are two completely different machines, and I don't know what the magic fairy dust is, but it works. I switched to Provigil shortly after I started using the ASV, and I like it alot better than the Adderall. Adderall wasn't doing a whole lot of anything for me, but the Provigil helps keep me focused, and I've been getting a WHOLE LOT MORE work done during the day! I'm actually catching up on stuff that I've been letting slide....I've gotten more work done since the ASV in January than I did all year last year, I think.
I had my 3 month follow up with my sleep doctor the other day, and he was really impressed. I am more alert, I have more energy, I'm staying awake and focused, and he says that I am his "poster child" for the Vpap Adapt....LOL! He looked at me and laughed and said "there's just something wrong with your brain, that's all there is to it!" He thinks that there has to be some minor damage up there from a car accident I had several years ago....enough to throw everything off in relation to central apneas, but not enough to show up on an MRI (which came back normal). (of course, my husband said "I could have told you there was something wrong with your brain....you didn't have to go see a specialist!" LOL!)
Anyway.... my advice is CALL your doctor, specifically ask about the Vpap Adapt SV, and tell him you want to be tested with it to see if it will work for you! I love mine....as somebody on here has on their tagline: you can have my Adapt when you can pry it from my cold dead fingers!
