We have however also heard that the prolonged use of a BiPAP may render the user dependent on the machine and it would weaken the reflexive muscle so that when the machine is not being used, the patient would have a weaker breath.
What do you think?

"becomes dependent on BiPAP" because of using it. You have much to learn and should be reading http://www.breatheNVS.com more and visiting the centers listed there, which are the only ones that can really help you.
