See a Pharmacist to STOP snoring

When sleep-trained, they help you stop snoring by screening and signposting you appropriately, and helping you address the underlying causes.

Why do Anything About Snoring?

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Snoring is often seen as a joke.

But did you know that the snorer with untreated sleep apnoea can expect to:

Die 20 years sooner1 

than the average lifespan, independent of age, sex and weight?

Snoring may be a symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).

The sleep-trained pharmacist understands snoring isn’t funny.

They know snoring means you are:

  • Experiencing relationship disharmony
  • Perhaps sleeping apart
  • Perhaps have no holidays because of enforced sleep disruption when sharing a hotel room
  • May fear travelling due to concern over falling asleep during long journeys on public transport and the consequent ridicule and embarrassment

You deserve valid help.

Around 40% of the UK report regular snoring2 

How do Pharmacists help?

Screening, Recognising and Signposting

The sleep-trained pharmacist will:

  • Assess your snoring and contributory factors
  • Screen you for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) and relevant comorbidities
  • Discuss evidence-based help that may extend your healthy life
  • Connect you with the appropriate NICE recommended treatment

Benefits & Outcomes

Benefits:

You will be:

  • Assessed by a sleep-trained professional
  • Screened for symptoms of OSA
  • Signposted appropriately

Outcomes:

You will know:

  • Why you snore
  • What to do about it
  • Where to go to stop

You will receive a comprehensive, actionable, personal report.

And if you’re sleepy when you should be awake (hypersomnolent) you may ask the pharmacist to bring this to your GP’s attention.

Sleep-trained pharmacists can also help with the underlying reasons WHY you snore.

For example, they can offer professional help and advice with:

  • Weight management
  • Smoking cessation
  • Alcohol reduction/cessation
  • A medicines review (perhaps a prescription medicine is having an unforeseen sedative effect worsening your snoring/OSA)
  • Offer advice re positional therapy
