Can you suggest a good solution for heavy snoring?

Sleep apnea?: Hi. Heavy snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea. Ask the person who sleeps with the snorer if the snorer stops breathing frequently for long pauses (relatively speaking!).

Are there good over-the-counter solutions to solve loud snoring?

Are there good over-the-counter solutions to solve loud snoring?

Yes: I agree that it is most important to see a knowledgeable doctor to check if you are at risk for sleep apnea. At home, consider a positioning device that prevents you from sleeping on the back, if snoring is mostly in that position. Alcohol and exercise avoidance within several hours of bedtime may reduce it. Inexpensive oral appliances that advance the jaw could help if tolerated. ...Read more

It causes health problems such as brain problems, blood pressure problems, and heart problems. If the sleep doctors, ear-nose-throat doctors, or lung doctors decide that a CPAP machine is needed, the improvement could be "instant" relief. ...Read more

Constriciton in flow: The audible soundof snoring is caused by a constrition of airflow, typically by tissues of the throat, uvulae, tongue, or somewhere in the airway. As we relax the muscles during sleep, the airway gets blocked, and the tissues flutter. Sometimes the airway gets completely blocked. This is called sleep apnea and can be quite serious.

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. ...Read more
