In brief: Prop up on pillows

Try placing as many pillows as needed to prop your upper body and head up.
You are less apt to snore in this semi-recumbent position, and you should be able to position yourself flat on your back.

In brief: Mouth guard

You could consider a mouth guard.
But you may have apnea so it is best to be tested with a sleep study. CPAP would eliminate your snoring and apnea... Best used on your back.
