One reader reported that taking the cardiovascular medicine icosapent ethyl (Vascepa) also made snoring improve. Vascepa has not been tested for this.
Using a CPAP anti-snoring device helps people with sleep apnea feel more rested, but it does not protect them from heart attacks and strokes.
A custom-fitted, adjustable oral appliance reduced snoring and sleep apnea, but volunteers still suffered from daytime sleepiness.
When snoring is due to sleep apnea, using CPAP may also help symptoms of depression.
