Is there anything you can do to stop someone from snoring?

Besides the obvious of waking them up or pinching their nose lol. What about those breathe right strips?

  • My husband snored like a freight train for yrs. His Dr finally said..lets test for sleep apnea..he was off the charts. He now sleeps with a CPAP machine on and he doesn't snore. Funny thing long as it took me to get used to sleeping next to his snoring..when it stopped..I couldn't sleep for like 3 weeks.LOL. The breathe right strips are good for sports, and when you have a cold...but day to day..I don't think they make that much difference. Not for us anyway.

  • you can try that but it is also something to consult a doctor on. Could be a sleep disorder

  • I think the sleep apnea test is a really good idea. My mom snored for years and years and had sleep issues...she had a sleep study done and was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. They gave her a CPAP machine, but she couldn't stand to use it...but it DID help when she forced herself to use it. She would pull it off in her sleep and continue to stop breathing.

    But if you can afford it, I think a real doctor consultation is a great idea. Snoring can sometimes indicate bigger problems, yanno?

  • It is sleep apnea!! There is relief though you don't have to use the CPAP machines any more. There are dentists out there that can help you w/ an appliance that would be worr at night. What it does is pull the jaw forward allowing airflow thru. Call around to see if there are dentists in your area that do this. If not there is one in Texas that you can call and they can let you know specialists in your area. Granbury Dental Center 817-573-3761 they do sleep apnea appliances, the best doctors in town! They can refer you to someone.
