Mixed: I take it you are dealing with obstructive sleep apnea vs. central sleep apnea (a less common version where your signal to breathe is not working). With obstructive sleep apnea, the question is where is the blockage, from your nose to your lungs. Theravent or Provent might be a little helpful. Solution is an oral appliance or CPAP machine after a formal sleep study. Avoid anything sedating.
