Some Useful Suggestions for Snorers

  • Try to lose weight if you are obese
  • Avoid taking sleeping pills – certain sleeping pills may cause the upper airway to relax, which leads to snoring
  • Avoid consuming alcohol after 6pm – alcohol causes relaxation of muscles and swelling of the tissues of the airway
  • Sleep on your side and avoid sleeping on your back – some people snore, or snore heavily only when sleeping on their back
  • Quit smoking – smoking causes swelling of the tissues of the airway, which results in snoring
  • Allow your bed partner to fall asleep before retiring to bed
  • Provide ear plugs for your bed partner
