How to stop snoring?

Depends on the cause: If you have primary snoring only, without sleep apnea (sa), try simple things like weight loss, sleep on your side, avoid sedatives and alcohol prior to bedtime, etc. But if you are a robust snorer, see your md for a sleep study to determine if you have sa. This is a more serious problem than just making noise, and needs treatment from your md and possibly your dentist.
