Non medical tx: There are alternatives to medical treatment of snoring. You can try having your husband sleep on his side or stomach. This may decrease his snoring.

Breathe-right strips help decrease nasal congestion and subsequently snoring. ...Read more

Herbal supplements: I have occasionally used these "adaptogens" usually as a precursor to actual thyroid supplementation in patients with fatigue (associated with Hashimoto's thyroid disease). They are fairly safe, but consider rechecking your thyroid tests after a period of use. I doubt they will interfere with your contraceptives. Try lower doses and titrate gradually to avoid side effects (i.e. nausea). ...Read more
