Snoring Information

 The following is advice for mild or occasional snoring. Serious snorers who snore nearly every night regardless of their sleep position should see their doctor to be sure that sleep apnea is not a problem.

These tips can help snoring for nearly all light snorers:

  • Try to sleep on your side. Sleeping on your back is usually the worst for snoring, but even sleeping on your stomach is not as effective as sleeping on your side.
  • Do not drink alcohol or eat heavy meals for 3-4 hours before going to sleep.
  • Many medications induce snoring. Try to cut back on sleeping pills and antihistamines before bed. Ask your doctor if any other medication you take may be causing your snoring.
  • Exercise and keep your weight down. Most snoring problems are primarily caused by fatty tissue and poor muscle tone in the throat.

Note: Snoring is not a joke or something to take lightly. Light snoring can progress into a serious case of obstructive sleep apnea, which causes a complete stop of breathing during sleep. Also, snoring causes poor quality of sleep, making you tired and less productive during the day.
