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.
