I also have mild sleep apnea & was taking Lisinopril for high blood pressure. As soon as my doctor took me off the Lisinopril, my extreme tiredness and fatigue went away. You may want to see if this is a drug side effect that is causing your tiredness. Maybe your blood pressure treatment can be adjusted. I hope this is helpful!
