Hi: I'm interested in getting a mouth guard (something like SnoreRx) for my husband for his snoring at night. Has anyone had any experience on these mouth guards? I will appreciate if you can recommend a product that works well and doesn't cost a fortune. I'm also open to suggestions on pillows, nose pads, or anything to help the snoring stop. Also, would you recommend first seeing an ENT doctor? it's hard to get him out the door to medical appointments. Thanks!

Does he stop breathing for a moment and then snort? If so that is a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. He needs a sleep study as that is a risk factor for stroke and heart attacks. Another symptom is dreaming he is falling and jerking a little.

The first thing he needs, as suggested above, is a sleep study. You need to know if he has sleep apnea or not. I have sleep apnea and used to snore but now have a CPAP machine and don't.

My dad just got one of those mouth guard things and they seem to work well for him. He's always had trouble sleeping though and they think snoring is one of the reasons why. My friend's dad has one of those oxygen mask machine things and he says he's never gotten such a great night's sleep when using it. But I think they're rather expensive.
