What to do if i'm snoring, what medicine is good for me(50 years old)?

What to do if i'm snoring, what medicine is good for me(50 years old)?

Snoring: I usually recommend weight loss as the ultimate treatment. If not obese, then Afrin nasal spray for no longer than 5 days. After using the spray for 3 days, have a sleep partner rate your snoring. If resolved or much improved, then your nasal passages are contributing to the snoring. Begin saline nasal spray and follow with Nasacort (triamcinolone) OTC. If no improvement consider a dental device may help. ...Read more

I'm just 23 years old and snoring quite badly. My friends are telling me they can't sleep because of my loud snoring. How do I stop snoring?

Find the cause: Snoring is related to either a restricted airflow or turbulent airflow that can be caused by a number of things, such as the position you sleep, the size and position of the tongue, soft palate, uvula, mandible, tonsils, and any problems with your nose. Depending on the cause, a number of options can be discussed. If your problem is strictly snoring, a pillar procedure may help. ...Read more

Hmmm: Have the pediatrician take a look. They might want the ENT to take a look as well. Osa in kids can occur but your first concern is putting your mind at rest and making sure your child is getting a good night's sleep. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 16 month old baby to snore?

Is it normal for a 16 month old baby to snore?

Snoring in an infant: Or child may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. Ask your pediatrician about a sleep study or monitoring your child's oxygen saturation during sleep, as even mild drops can cause developmental delays. If you took Lamictal during pregnancy, there is a slight chance of a small, heretofore unrecognized cleft of the palate or a submucous cleft, so referral to a pediatric ENT may be warranted. ...Read more

My 10 year old girl snores is that normal?

My 10 year old girl snores is that normal?

Tonsils OSA: She may have large tonsils causing some narrowing of the airway and thus snoring at hight. I am more concerned if she is overweight, because that can cause another level of obstruction. As she's breathing at night, check for "pauses" of her breathing, even count with a second hand on your watch. Any pause of more than 20 seconds is definitely not normal.Is there a " snap" as the airway opens? ...Read more

This can be due to allergies, reflux, congestion from URI or something like apnea. If behavioral modification like humidifier/nasal suctioning don't help, talk to your doctor. May need sleep study. ...Read more

Is it normal for my almost 3 year old to snore loud and sometimes stop breathing for a few secs. Does not have cold and we have a humidifier running?

Is it normal for my almost 3 year old to snore loud and sometimes stop breathing for a few secs. Does not have cold and we have a humidifier running?

Uncommon & progresiv: If a kid is snoring at 3 it is likely to progress to a point where it causes sleep apnea even if it is not present now. T&a mass grows faster than the kid until ~8y. If your kid is grumpy, dozes a lot during the day & the pauses you mention last >10 sec, you have a problem now. Record the snoring pattern & seek out a consultation with an ent. The humidifier is unlikely to help. ...Read more

My son is only 3.5 years. He is diagnosed as adenoid hypertrophy, 4/5, snoring seriously, if its ok to do adenoidectomy on his age?

Rare complications : Fortunately complications of tonsillectomy are rare with good surgical technique, post operative pain control and medical care. On the other hand, sleep apnea from obstructive tonsils are problematic and cause poor sleep, among other complications. We always weigh the risk of the benefit with the risk of the procedure. Ask your surgeon questions before proceeding! ...Read more
