What is a good medicine for snoring?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Arnon Rubin
23 years experience in Internal Medicine
No medicine works: The only cases when medicine can work are when treating underlying conditions that make the snoring worse such as allergies causing upper airway congestion or treating heartburn/reflux with medication. The only other types of meds for snoring is weight loss meds. Snoring is often weight related and loosing weight can help. Overall though sleep apnea is risk. You should see you doctor.
