Associations Below: Selective serotonin reuptake
inhibitors were associated
with a lower percentage of rapid eye movement sleep and lower sleep efficiency values in patients with osa, compared with those not taking
any medications. The use of ß-adrenergic receptor-blocking agents had no consistent associations with the indexes of sleep architecture.
