Taking some types of medication, such as sedatives, can relax the soft tissues at the back of the throat, increasing your risk of snoring.
You may find that you do not have the muscle tone needed to keep the upper airway sufficiently open during the night to prevent the vibration of soft tissue.
What can you do?
- If you take medication that has a sedating effect, consider asking your doctor to prescribe a non-sedating alternative.
- Do not stop taking prescribed medication without consulting your doctor.
