Sleep aid devices - Zyppah, etc

Sleep aid devices - Zyppah, etc

My wife snores. She has vowed to look at the devices she hears on the radio, such as the Zyppah, etc. Anyone have experiences with any of these? She will not use a CPAP device.

If she has obstructive sleep apnea, then CPAP is the only choice. And that's not just to keep her quiet, that's a matter of long term health.

If a sleep study indicates the necessity of CPAP/BIPAP (?) the individual begins to experience well-needed deep sleep in addition to eliminating the annoying snoring they have experienced. It may be a bit of a hassle but the health benefits are worth it. I don't use one, but if one is recommended to me, I'd be reluctant out of vanity, but I think once I tried it, I'd be sold on it. Good luck to her!

Ive asked her to get a sleep study. We are newly married. From what I feel, it is a typical snore, and is not a persistent thing. She can snore for five minutes and then done for three hours. She went online and ordered something with a money back thing, and used her credit card. About $100. She works for a dentist and they refer patients to an oral surgeon for the dental devices so that may be a next step. She said they run about $1500 though she might get it half price. Im not really pushing it, don't want to touch a raw nerve

5 minutes out of three hours? Sounds like much less snoring than normal! Keep her!

Yeah, that's no big deal.

When I was working shift work my wife had it pretty bad, I would snore all night according to her. There were a few times where I would wake up with her shaking me to get me to breathe. She would tell me that I'd stopped breathing for a few minutes. It turned out that the cure for me was retirement. Seriously. I got onto a regular sleep schedule and it has pretty much stopped according to her.

She does not stop breathing. It's just a regular snore. And sometimes it is just a very faint noise when she exhales, like she is mouthing the word "poof".

I wouldn't worry about it then, but that's just regarding her health. But that doesn't take you into account. I'd just go to sleep and stay asleep for the night if I were you.

She tried one of the mouthguard devices. Did not work. Maybe because the device did not mold well to her teeth. When we get the refund on the guarantee we will try the Zyppah
