Now that I’m feeling better, can I stop using my CPAP?

You should not stop using your CPAP until your doctor tells you that it’s safe to do so.

Stopping CPAP can allow OSA to return with all of its negative effects, unless it has been controlled or eliminated by some other measure. If you have lost weight, quit smoking, given up alcohol or sleeping pills, you have done yourself a big healthy favour and you should feel proud. However, a repeat sleep study is the best way to know for sure whether or not you still require treatment.
