    Exercising for at least 30 minutes after your run may help. It has helped me . I got rid of OSA that way. And I sleep better.

    Don't see how it could work but if it does I'm all for it.

    I wouldn't think it would be strong enough. But even if it works for some, That would be great.

    I had ordered some nasal pillows and they sent a nasal mask instead, called them back and they argued with me about it, then said they would send out the pillows

    Got my supply's Friday.Biggest complaint that OD was having with the driver's was the driver's complaining because of the call's that they were receiving from the company.Freak'n crazy...I like the call's&Txt messages on how I'm doing.If I didn't want to talk& don't answer.The company has changed there call/answer system now.Very frustrating to me that when I call the lady takes the message then tell's me someone will return my call within a period of time.Well,I miss the call&the process start's over again.Uggg!!!..I do think the company promised OD more than they can handle.With over 800 employee's on the program now.I do think the company struggles to keep up for sure.

    Went private through insurance, we seemed to be getting run around in our area. My regular doc suggested it. At least 4 drivers use this men's health doc. Been over a year 97 percent. Now only have to see yearly. Just before dot physical. I was just under requirement to be required. Did anyway, because, knowing system, would have hassle

    let's just say, certain locations you are on your own, even after calling the info/help line, if odds are you meet criteria, best be preventative, cause most sleep centers have 60+ wait period

    I was one of the 1st ones to join on.I had it before switching to the OD program.So I just went&pick'd up equipment.The Sleep Fusion Company set's up at located motel's near Service Center.No problem here.They send me my DOT letter a month before I go for check-up.I just cut out my sleep doc that I had been seeing.Sometimes I wonder if I should go back to seeing my Doc again for a another opinion &checking up to make sure Sleep Fusion is on same path with my care.I think since I'm closest to Corp OD maybe I get blindsided on how it is working outside of our area.I'm 100%compliant from day 1&love it.
