Medical Snoring Treatments



There are several homeopathic and medical snoring treatments available for snorers. If you've tried all the natural cures for snoring and they haven't worked for you, it may be time to move onto one of these snoring remedies.

Some of these medications are over the counter snoring remedies, while others must be prescribed by your physician. Check with your doctor for availability of these stop snoring methods.

Medical Snoring Help

Nasal Corticosteroids

These are sprays that help reduce the swelling in the nasal passages, therefore reducing congestion and snoring.

Some examples of corticosteriods are:

  • Beconase AQ
  • Rhinocort
  • Nasarel
  • Flonase
  • Nasonex
  • Nasacort AQ
  • Veramyst

Remember that even though these are steriods, they are not the type of steriods that people use to "bulk up." The side effects of these spray are minimal, even after long periods of use.

Decongestants

Decongestants narrow blood vessels, reducing the blood supply to nasal mucous membranes, which reduces congestion. If your snoring is being caused by nasal congestion, this may help snoring stop.

Some examples of decongestants are:

  • Afrin
  • Comtrex, Contac-D
  • Sudafed

There can be some side effects from using decongestants to stop snoring, such as: high blood pressure, insomnia, nervousness or irritability, headache, and increased pulse rate. It is for these reasons that decongestants should only be used once in awhile for short periods (no more than 3 days).

Allergy Medications

If your snoring is due to allergies, curing snoring may be as easy as reducing your allergy symptoms. Allergies cause swelling in your airways, which is a main reason for snoring.

Some examples of allergy medications are:

  • Chlor-Trimeton
  • Benadryl
  • Tavist
  • Allegra
  • Claritin
  • Zyrtec

Some of these allergy medications can be purchased over the counter. Consult your physician to find the best choice for you.

Inhaler or Nebulizer Treatments

Help to reduce the symptoms of allergies, and can be effective cures for snoring problems. An effective one is Cromolyn, which helps to reduce allergy symptoms by preventing mast cells from releasing histamine.
