Health Tip: If Snoring Keeps You up at Night
Losing excess weight may help
(HealthDay News) -- Snoring can be disruptive for you and your partner, and it may be a warning sign of sleep apnea.
The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions that may help prevent the problem:
- Lose any excess weight.
- Before bed, avoid medications such as antihistamines, sleeping pills and tranquilizers.
- Have your last meal or snack at least three hours before bed, and your last alcoholic beverage at least four hours before.
- Adhere to a regular sleep schedule.
- Roll onto your side, instead of sleeping on your back.
