I understand that Cognitive Behavior Therapy is effective and wouldn't mind ditching the Lunesta but without the pills, I can't fall asleep at all.
Is CBT-I  effective for chronic imsomnia ( for sleep onset latency) while requiring a CPAP? I understand that many of the CBT-I studies exclude patients with sleep apnea.
Any thoughts on this matter. Thanks!
