Prozac,viibryd And Sleep Apnea

i was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2006. I  used the machine for a week and gave up. my dr put me on prozac and i was on it until June of this year.  no side effects but i am always tired . i can nap any time of the day ,anywhere i can get 5 min of peace. i started working a ton of overtime in july until Thanksgiving weekend  and my body just crapped out. I had no desire to do anything at all but work and sleep. I thought maybe prozac would get me over the hump but boy was i wrong. After 1 week i had immediate side effects(racing mind ,anxiety off the charts, panic attacks and so on).I went from not being able to stay awake to not being able to sleep. my doc tried me on Viibryd and i did good for 2 wekes then back to feeling horrible. Just had a sleep test and my average was 52 times an hour stopping breathing. i will do whatever i have to do to use this new cpap and get my life back together. my dr said that osa can cause many problems with anxiety ,depression, and everything else having to do with brain. I was just wondering if anyone else went through this and what kind of success you are having with cpap. Thank you

I had Sleep Apnea but talked to my Ears, Nose and Throat" doctor (who had the same surgery himself) and he was able to convince my insurance company (in less than 5 munutes), that a 60 minute surgery taking out my tonsils, my uvla, and a bunch of that extra hanging crap in my throat and I was cured of sleep apnea. I was in and out of the hospital where the surgery took place in four hours. I cannot snore now because everything back there to allow snoring is removed. Four of my friends have asked for and have gotten the surgery and are now sleeping like a babies every night with no CPAP machine ever again. Check it out. Ask the question. I had the operation in 2010 and am very thankful I made the decision to have the surgery. I had 10 days of a sore throat and now a lifetime of no problems.
