Good advice, OC; thanks. Pseudoephedrine is part of my past too, but not nearly as strong as oxymetazoline. The quickest thing to waken me is a stuffy nose & during the six years I've been on CPAP, it seemed an even more important issue to keep upper respiration flowing smoothly. I hated to take sudafed at night because I thought it would keep me awake, so I used oxymetazoline nasal spray every night for at least 25-30 years. Only since last November have I come off it & been able to sleep without anything to help.

Whenever I need a new CPAP machine, it'll come with a humidifier and I hope that will help even more. Rhinitis has bedeviled me most of my life & with spring pollens coming thicker with each new day, we're going to find out over the next couple of months, just what kind of stuff I'm made of in staying away from decongestants.
