I got a Cpap machine...

Using the face mask and its a pain in the neck, does anyone use the nose pillow mask?

2. No to the pillow and yes to full face mask.

Probably the biggest headache to being on a CPAP is dry mouth, and I mean to the point of dry as shoe leather.

A pillow or nasal mask may work for you, but if you relax to point that your mouth falls open when sleeping, you’ll have huge volumes of air blown in your nose and straight out your mouth.

It’s not pleasant when you wake up. A full mask and humidifier set on high helps, but does not completely alleviate dry mouth.

5. The full mask helps to alleviate that. It provides equal pressure to nose and mouth.

If by chance you do mouth breath it’s not nearly as big a problem as using a nasal mask.
