In children with mild apnea combined therapy with an inhaled nasal steroid and a medication that decreased nasal congestion (montelukast) was shown to be effective. We are testing to see if this combination works in adults with mild apnea as well.
40 adults with mild OSA (< 5 apneas/hypopneas per hour of sleep) will receive either a combination of two medicines that decrease nasal congestion-montelukast and nasal budesonide-or a placebo pill and nasal spray. After 3 months of therapy, a repeat sleep study will be done to determine the differences, if any, in the frequency of sleep disordered breathing in the two groups.
