Snoring Prevention

There are several self-care steps to help a snoring problem. If these measures don't work, make an appointment with a doctor for an evaluation:

  • If you are overweight by 10% or more, try to lose weight
  • If you smoke, quit
  • Sleep on your side or stomach; sleeping on your back can worsen snoring
  • Do not eat a large meal or drink alcohol within three hours of bedtime
  • Be careful about using over-the-counter devices and medications to stop snoring unless advised to try one by your health care provider
  • Cut back on caffeine or eliminate completely
