Our expert says:
Taking sleeping tablets at night may worsen your sleep apnoea symptoms, and that is why it is mostly not recommended. However if you have a sleep evaluation at a sleep clinic and your measurements are ok with the CPAP machine on sleeping tablets, you could probably use it. I am not an expert on these machines but see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positive_airway_pressure
