In brief: Could be wt loss.

It is possible that your vpap needs to be re-titrated.
If you have lost or gained 30 pounds or more then your pressure may need to be changed. If that is not the case, then you may benefit from a wakefulness promoting medication. Both Provigil and Nuvigil are available for the purpose of helping apnea patients stay awake. Talk to your sleep doctor about this. Also consult your weight loss surgeon.
