Hello! My husband is forty-five and he has been diagnosed a sleep apnea. He is snoring and makes pauses during his sleep which last for few seconds. He is also very nervous during the day. Since he is a bus driver his day time sleepiness could be very dangerous for him. Since he has high blood pressure his doctor said he is a high risk patient. He has to stop smoking and alcohol consuming and he has to lose weight. His doctor says the best solution for him is CPAP device but my sister says Effexor XR is the best solution for sleep apnea. What is the better solution for him?

Hello! Effexor is an antidepressant used in treatment major, social and panic disorders. You should know that narcotics and anti-anxiety drugs can only worsen the problems connected with sleep apnea. These medicines cause the soft tissues in the throat to sag and decrease the ability to inhale which could be very dangerous. Even when apnea patients go on a surgery they should inform the surgeons and anesthesiologists of their sleeping disorder to avoid any sedatives or aenestetic that could complicate breathing. Listen to your doctor and use CPAP.

Your sister is a f*%king id**t. SNRI's are not a treatment for sleep apnea, she obviously has no medical knowledge yet is suggesting a rather potent drug for an unrelated condition she knows nothing about? Tell her to go jump and in future, only listen to your doctor or another trained health professional instead of asking the goddamn internet.
