Treatment : Obstructive sleep apnea, which is the most common form, usually occurs when there is a temporary obstruction in the pathway between the mouth & lungs during sleep. To correct the problem, treatments include: continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and sometimes bipap or others, stimulant medications such as provigil, Nuvigil etc, surgical interventions to correct the obstruction. See your doc.
