One day my husband had enough and offered me to see a GP, who prescribed a nose spray. I can't say that it helped, and as I got pregnant I stopped using it. But then I found out that I'm not the only snorer in our family... I didn't really insist on my husband taking any anti-snoring medications but when Soluznore (£9.95 for 15 lozenges) got in touch I thought it's the right moment to try something out.
"As many as one in four of us in the UK is prone to snoring, which can be very disruptive for both snorer and their partner, and often lead to excessive tiredness, poor concentration and even relationship problems.
As part of the ‘Great British Snoring Survey’ it was said that 48% of partners are obliged to sleep in separate rooms to get a good night’s sleep".
We have received 1 pack of Solusnore lozenges just in time for National Stop Snoring Week.
Solusnore lozenges' ingredients include vitamins E and B5, mint oil, aloe vera and pectin.
"Solusnore lozenges are specially formulated to gradually impregnate the flexible tissue in the throat to help prevent snoring. A number of factors can contribute to the slackening of these tissues including age and alcohol and tobacco consumption".
I was a little bit confused by French packaging but eventually we worked out that you need to take 1 tablet an hour before bedtime. It was also recommended to suck the lozenge in a lying position as this will allow to lubricate the soft tissue of the throat easily, but as we have never gone to bed an hour before it was a little bit hard to follow.
According to my husband Solusnore lozenge has a very strong mint flavour similar to anti-acid tablets and takes 10-15 minutes to dissolve.
My husband has tried these tablets for couple of days and I have noticed a slight improvement. I can't say if it worked the whole night (it guarantees to work up to 8 hours) as I fell asleep but the difference is there- his snoring from quieter changes to no snoring at all (from what I can tell).
Hopefully one day when I will decide to stop breastfeeding I can try Solusnore as well.
