Snoring can point to other, serious medical problems, such as obstructive sleep apnea. Treatment includes losing weight, sleeping on one's side, and using decongestants or nasal steroid sprays before sleep. A device that pushes the jaw and tongue forward can be placed in the mouth to facilitate breathing, and a machine that provides a treatment called continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, can also open the airway.
