Q:
What Are the Aids for Sleep Apnea?

A:
Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition occurring in all age groups and both genders. Generally speaking, medication treatment is not very effective for sleep apnea. Behavioral changes are more important in the treatment of sleep apnea.

Following aids may be helpful:

  • Drink alcohol moderately, if at all, and don’t drink several hours before bedtime.
  • Avoid the use of sleeping pills.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Lose weight if you’re overweight.
  • Use pillows and other devices to help sleep in a side position.

If the above aids don’t work, you’d better consult your doctor for more advice.
