Finding a snoring treatment that works for you may not be as easy as it sounds. The first step is to figure out what is causing your snoring, as that has a drastic impact on which treatment to go with. My first suggestion for snorers is the easiest and most affordable to try. In fact, it's free. All you need to do is roll over onto your side. When you switch sleeping positions, your tongue moves with you. This means that it has a tendency to move away from the back of your throat and towards the side of your mouth, reducing the odds of you snoring.
When rolling over doesn't work for you as a snoring treatment, the next thing to try is the nose strip solution. Go to your local drug store, pick up a box of breathing strips (they're under $10 for a box of a dozen or so) and give them a shot. You'll look kind of silly with a breathing strip across the bridge of your nose, but it's a small price to pay for you and your bedmate to be able to sleep well. Just make sure that in the morning, when you go to pull it off, you are really gentle. Sometimes the adhesive can irritate sensitive skin, or even pull off a layer of it when your rip it off.
If you've tried both of those and they haven't put a dent in your snoring, you may need to spend a little more money on your next snoring treatment. A humidifier has been known to work in some cases, but if the air in your house isn't dry you might want to skip making that investment. The next step may be to see your dentist, who could suggest that you have him or her custom make you a mandibular advancement splint to wear as you sleep. While these are effective for many people, they can cost as much as $3,000.
