What can you do to stop snoring?

 

Follow the advices given below in order to reduce your snoring problem. They may be effective as a prophylactic, too.

 

  • Go to sleep only if you’re tired
  • Go to sleep only in your bed (not on the couch or armchair)
  • Get used to a fixed sleeping cycle (go to bed and get up on a determined time only (also at the weekend and on holidays).
  • Don’t have any drinks or pharmaceuticals with alcohol or caffeine four to six hours before going to bed
  • Don’t work out immediately before going to bed
  • Don’t smoke immediately before going to bed or during the night
  • If you’re overweight, try to lose weight
  • Abstain from pharmaceuticals, such as sleeping pills and sedatives
  • Elevate your torso slightly while sleeping
  • Avoid sleeping on your back. Get yourself used to sleeping on your side (using auxiliaries, if necessary).
  • Humidify the air


Consult your doctor if these advices should not help to reduce your snoring problem after 4 weeks. In this case, the TAP® splint could be an appropriate therapy to help you stop snoring and to lead you and your partner directly to a healthy restorative sleep.

Prepare yourself to the talk with your doctor answering to the questions in the checklist “Are you a snorer?”
