How to Stop Snoring & Drooling


Stop Snoring & Drooling Snoring and drooling are unintentional, bothersome and in some cases embarrassing. There are physiological reasons for snoring and drooling, as well as solutions. Snoring may be caused by excessive tissue in your nose or throat, or the position of your tongue. Drooling may be caused by an excessive flow from the salivary glands or poor muscle tone. Conservative treatments may help or cure these problems. If all else fails, surgery is an option.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

  • Blocks to elevate your bed
  • Tennis ball
  • Continuous positive airway pressure mask and equipment
  • Dental appliance
  • Medication to inhibit the parasympathetic system   

    How to Stop Snoring



  1. Step 1
    Place blocks under the head of your bed to raise your head higher. Sleeping on your side may help. If you consistently roll onto your back, sew a tennis ball into the back of a T-shirt to keep you from doing so.


  2. Step 2
    Limit your consumption of alcohol and clear your nasal passages before going to sleep. Keeping your nasal airway open may prevent you from opening your mouth to breath while you sleep.


  3. Step 3
    Use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mask if you have sleep apnea. Snoring is common with sleep apnea and wearing the mask will ensure that you are getting enough oxygen, eliminating the need for you to breath through your mouth.


  4. Step 4
    Use a dental device, similar to a mouth guard, that adjusts your jaw and tongue to keep your airway open.


    How to Stop Drooling



  5. Step 1
    Take a medication that your doctor can prescribe that inhibits the parasympathetic system that is part of the autonomic system that controls saliva production. Three medications that may help are glycopyrrolate, trihexyphenidyl hydrochloride and benztropine mesylate.


  6. Step 2
    Have an injection of botulinum toxin A into the parotid gland. The injection is given under anesthesia and lasts as long as eight months.


  7. Step 3
    Try biofeedback and hypnotherapy if you don't want to take medications or are looking for a less-invasion solution. Speech therapy may help children who drool.
