In brief: Depends
Depends on the severity.
If you are just a primary snorer, some of those things can work. For instance, they make sleep shirts that have tennis balls on the back to you have to sleep on your side. Also try eliminating any alcohol or sedatives prior to bedtime. Losing weight can help too. But if you are a robust snorer, you might have sleep apnea. This is more serious. See your md for a sleep study.
