Background: In my sleep studies last summer, despite taking Lunesta in one and Ambien in the other, I couldn't settle down at all. So, for my third and latest study a few weeks ago, I added 0.5 mg of clonazepam to a bedtime Lunesta. Because my prescribed pressures (20/16 BIPAP) came back significantly higher than they had been set at in a study just 9 months prior (13 CPAP), I'm wondering if my meds contributed to my situation at all.
Most of what I've read hasn't been terribly quantitative, so I'm hoping some of you might be able to weigh in and offer an opinion. Such a small amount of clonazepam seems like it would have little to no impact, but what do I know? Thanks!
