When medication related side effects occur, regarding for instance steroids (steroid induced psychosis), symptoms may take a little time to subside. A C-Pap is used in conditions, ie, sleep apnea, and will have no effect on alleviating symptoms not related to the sleep apnea itself. I hope both you and your mom are doing well.
