Some drugs can worsen obstructive sleep apnea

Some drugs can worsen obstructive sleep apnea.

About 15 million Americans have "obstructive sleep apnea" due to blockage of the airway while sleeping. It's most common in overweight men...especially if they have a large neck.

This blockage lowers blood oxygen levels and triggers an INCREASE in blood pressure and heart rate. That's why sleep apnea is associated with a higher risk of heart disease.
