Sleep Apnea
Sep 14, 2003

Recently have developed what appears to be sleep apnea (according to my doc, after a "home study"). However, I don't fit any of the usual categories for patients with apnea. One of my friends said that they had heard that certain PI's can be the cause of this problem and I figured if anyone would know, it would be you guys!<G>

Response from Dr. Henry

I would sugget an evaluation by a sleep disorder specialist. I am not aware of an significant increase in sleep apnea due to PIs as the sole reason. KH
