In brief: R/O OSA

Occasionally, you need OSA EVAL.
Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP can be difficult to tolerate. ENT FOR UPP EVA

In brief: No, but ok to use

Usingng breath right strips can open your nostrils for more air flow, but it's not going to change the snoring.
Snoring occurs as a result of an obstruction in your throat, not your outer nose. Consider a sleep study to determine if you have sleep apnea. This can be a more serious problem.
