How much effectiveness will be reduced?
As long as I'm NOT snoring anymore while the CPAP is on, doesn't this mean that my obstruction is clear?

Should I experiment with different tapes, use MORE tape, or what?
Is there anything else I could use? Maybe denture adhesive
Another post said to use a hair band. I'm not sure what that is. Could someone describe it in more detail so I can go out and get one?

Same here -- started out with a chin strap and a nasal mask, switched to full face masks, and am now a hybrid mask newbie (have had mine 3 days, since Thursday). The chin strap didn't work for me, and the whole tape thing just seemed to be an unnecessary source of frustration...
