Asonor nose drops effectively remove the cause of snoring. It is a plain and simple treatment, which relives you of the inconvenience that snoring causes.In a new independent and comprehensive usertest of 7 anti snore remedies performed on men between the ages of 35 and 50, Asonor was award winning and #1 product overall as well as in the price/performance. This was according to the Scandinavian health magazine Sund Nu.The snore remedies in the test was mouth spray, mouthpiece, nasal strips, pillows and nasal spray. Each of the product was used by the test persons to see which of the 7 products effectively eliminate snoring and enabling a more peaceful night’s sleep. Both the user and the partner responded to each product’s effectiveness level.Asonor was the only nasal spray of the 7 products tested and it turns out that the three mouth spray delivered products scored the three lowest scores.

My patient who is already having an untreated deviated nasal septum suffers from frequent attacks of dry cough on getting up from bed. He feels that something is blocking his throat and gets momentary choking of the throat also. He says that his cough makes life horrible for him. He has so far no history of snoring. Could this be a carcinoma of the throat?

CPAP is the best solution for OSA and Snoring. I had undergone surgery for the OSA and snoring but to no effect. The operation did not help at all. I then opted for CPAP machine and for the last 3 years I am sleeping peacefully and my body weight has come down gradually.
