A couple of things: First try simple stuff like have him sleep on his side. Also avoid excess alcohol before bed, consider weight loss, and you might want to get a sleep study to dertermine if he has sleep apnea. It is a more serious problem.

Snoring: Hello, snoring is caused by a narrowing in your breathing pathway that is associated with vibration of the soft tissues in your upper airways. I first recommend weight loss if you are overweight. If your sleeping partner notices a stoppage of your breathing, then sleep apnea may be present which needs more thorough testing. If afrin helps to eliminate the snoring, it may improve with a nasal eval.

Get Checked : Snoring can indicate sleep apnea. You should consult with a qualified sleep specialist and have testing done. If you are apneic there are many treatments (CPAP, dental devices, surgery, etc). Non - apneic snoring can be treated with a dental device that holds your jaw in a forward position to open the airway.
