I was told it would take 2 weeks to become accustomed to the CPAP. I didn't make it, but other have.

good luck

When I first got my CPAP it took me about 3 weeks to adapt and then it worked quite well.

You're already making progress. I've been on cpap for over 6 mos. after having chronic insomnia for 4 yrs, and then restless legs and other nerve problems developed. So my progress has been very slow. Right now I'm dealing with nasal congestion from using nasal pillows. It might be the change in season so I've been experimenting with humidifier settings. Very frustrating as I had just started getting longer stretches of sleep on the machine and sleeping 6 hrs for consecutive nights. It's taking a long time to help me but I keep trying to obtain normal sleep again. Sleep is very important. Everybody is different in how fast they obtain real improvement. It has helped to stop restless legs most of the time now and I don't jerk awake much anymore. Progress is there.

I am atypical; it took me 7 minutes. I am serious. The tech at the sleep lab where I had the first study (I had a second a few years later) done gave me the info in the morning. I slept with it all night every night without issue right from the start.

Following up on myself as it occurred to me I should have added a little more background...

I did not have much trouble with insomnia when I first went on CPAP. I have had some trouble since but it is unrelated; more the type where I don't want to go to bed and don't try. Anyway, I always went to sleep pretty quickly, but I snored like an elk and would stop breathing for up to 70 seconds. I forget how many times per hour but I am at the low end of severe. I use nasal pillows.

I've been troubled with insomnia too and even after getting CPAP, it still bothers me. I can't still sleep well at night, instead, I'm being dizzy and having difficulty in breathing. I am now using *mod edit*, my mom bought it and even my sister was using it too because we both have a sleeping disorder. Now, I can sleep well and I don't have a problem anymore. My heath was improving each time I used this. *mod edit*
