Mike ........ I've done them numerous times over the years. It's no big deal. They monitor your sleep the first night with you sleeping as normal with some electrodes attached to you for monitoring purposes. If it's warranted they will bring you back a second night if you require the c-pap machine and mask like you mentioned. They set it the air flow on the machine and help you get the proper mask so that it provides you the maximum benefit. It's really not a big deal. Lots of people use them. I had to at one time but don't any longer. You won't have to stop taking your meds. Hope that helps. Relax! It's nothing to be concerned over. If you really need one they help. I was waking up like 42 times an hour at one time when I had to use the machine. Last time I did a study they said the only reason I woke up at night was due to pain. No machine was required any longer. God bless.
