My guy snored so loud that sometimes I felt like the neighbors could hear him. In fact, the man next door told me that sometimes he could actually hear his snoring through the wall. I felt bad approaching my guy about his snoring, as I know it is not his fault. However, not only is snoring most likely not healthy for him, but I was also losing sleep at night because of the sound.
Even when I would go into the other room, I could still hear him snoring from the bedroom. I recommended that he try an over the counter treatment to see if it could help him with his snoring. I did some research for him and found a product called Theravent. On the front of the box, it says that this product is clinically proven to significantly reduce snoring. I purchased the product for him and he gave it a try. The product is sold for roughly around $14. There are 14 strips in the box, so it is like paying a dollar per strip.
He takes one of the small strips out of the box and places over his nostrils. The first week of using this product, he said that it felt uncomfortable. It had actually disrupted his sleep at first, but he wanted to continue using it to see if he could adjust to it. After using it for the first week, he started getting more used to it and said that he felt more comfortable using it.
He uses this product almost every night now. It has greatly reduced his snoring. I am no longer waking up because of the sound of his loud snores. If I happen to wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, I can hear still hear him, but it is more like a light breathing sound. Every now and then, I still hear a light snore, but nothing like how it was before.
I could not believe how well this product worked. I did not think it would be able to work as well as it did. Hopefully in time, he will see a doctor who may be able to other suggest treatments for his snoring. In the meantime, Theravent seems to work very well at reducing and sometimes stopping his snoring. I would recommend this product to try if you or your partner have a snoring problem. It seems like a safe, effective product for reducing snoring.
