  •   If you don't smoke, the next question you should ask yourself is whether or not you're of a healthy weight. If you're overweight, the fat around your neck can put pressure on your throat as you sleep, much like if somebody was choking you with their hands. When the reason you snore is because you've got too much fat around your neck, the only way to quit snoring is to get your weight down. Once you've ruled out smoking and weight issues as potential causes for snoring, then you should start looking into which anti snoring product to buy.

  •   If you've tried both of the aforementioned cures and you need another answer to the how can I stop snoring? question, you may need to suck it up and see your doctor. You may have sleep apnea, a sleeping disorder that can have disastrous effects on your heart. If this is the case, surgery may be in order, but it could be one that can save your life.

    Comment to Topic Posted by John Spencer › What Is The Best Product To Stop Snoring?
  •   When those two tricks don't work, you might need to start saving up. Unless you have insurance, the next product to stop snoring can be extremely expensive. You'll need to see your doctor or dentist, who can custom make a mandibular advancement splint for you to wear to bed at night. This device gently pushes your lower jaw forward and encourages your tongue to advance as well. It's basically a $3,000 version of the roll over on your side to sleep method, so I suggest it as a last resort option.

  •   If you've tried the roll over and breathing strip stop snoring remedies and they haven't been successful in stopping the noise, you might want to invest in a special pillow. There are pillows on the market that are designed to help you sleep without snoring by positioning your head in a way that isn't conducive to sawing logs. They can be easily found online, and tend to cost around $50.

  •   If that alone doesn't work for you, the next best stop snoring remedies can be found at your local drug or grocery store. For less than $10 per box, you can pick up a dozen or so nose strips that will gently pull open your nasal cavity. Worn on the bridge of your nose, these adhesive strips stick to your skin and help air flow freely through your nose. When you're breathing through your nose, you aren't snoring. Problem solved!

  •   Finally, if these two things don't work or don't pertain to you, my next suggestion is to see your dentist. At first, he or she may tell you to roll over on your side when you sleep. This will move your tongue from the back of your throat to the side of your mouth, which can clear the airway and stop the vibrations that cause the snoring sound. If this doesn't work, you may need to be fitted for a custom mandibular advancement splint. What this device does is push your lower jaw out a bit and your tongue forward. While it sounds uncomfortable, it really isn't that bad to sleep with. When you consider the next way to stop from snoring, surgery, a mandibular advancement splint is not such a tortuous option.

  •   Quite possibly the most common snoring remedy, other than changing sleeping positions, are breathing strips. Affordable, comfortable and easy, these go over the bridge of your nose when you go to bed. They gently pull open your nasal passages and encourage you to breathe through your nose, rather than your mouth. Just be careful when you take them off, sometimes it hurts!

  •   If you're a smoker, however, the best snoring remedy may be to quit. When you smoke, your throat gets weakened and excess mucus can gather in your airway. The two can combine to cause snoring, which can only be cured by kicking the habit. In other cases, overweight people may need to lose weight to sleep soundly (and softly) at night. When you're obese, the fat around your neck can put pressure on your throat and cause snoring. The only way to fix that problem is to hit the treadmill.

  •   The answer to this question isn't an easy one. The best way to go about answering it, however, is to look for these symtoms to be coupled with other sleep apnea symtoms. Signs to be aware of include decreased sex drive, getting up frequently in the middle of the night to urinate, headaches, loud snoring and esophageal reflux. Also, if you're sweating heavily at night it may not have anything to do with the temperature of your room. Heavy sweating is yet another symtom of sleep apnea.

  •   Unfortunately, depression is only one of the many sleep apnea symtoms that confuse doctors. Anxiety, irritability and other behavior changes all are signs of sleep apnea. However, when a psychiatrist is presented with these symtoms, he or she may reasonably think that the patient is bipolar or schizophrenic. Again, the treatment that will be given in these cases will have nothing to do with solving the actual problem. That said, how does one know whether or not they're really depressed or bipolar, as opposed to when they're just experiencing the side effects of sleep apnea?
