Taking a chance: If you go and purchase an anti-snoring device otc or on the web, you may be jeopardizing your health. These products may seem to work, but the mouthpieces are non- adjustible and the other products may mask a more alarming form of sleep apnea. You should consider seeing your doctor for a sleep study and then get options- cpap, custom made oral appliance, surgery, lifestyle changes, etc.
