    Well, if you find any concrete answers let me know.

    I know part of my problem is that the allergies or cold that is flaring my asthma has my head stopped up so that I snore. As many allergy meds as I take, I don't think I could add anymore, and they aren't fixing it 100% yet. I will be starting a new shot mix next week though. So maybe that will help.

    I would recommend that you try to get as good control over your ashtma triggers like asthma and acid reflux as you can. That should reduce the inflammation in you sinuses reducing the snoring - in theory.

    I hope you get some better answers though. Here is to better, quieter sleeping.

    Maybe your snoring problem has nothing to do with asthma. Check with your dr to see about sleep apnea. Look it up on webMD maybe you have symtoms of it.
    Best of luck to you.

    when my son has asthma as well and when he was younger he would snore a lot every night when he would sleep so i spoke to his doctor when he went to have a check up for his surgury for his tonsils and the doctor said that he would like me to keep an eye on him for a few day and then see where to go next. so after a couple of weeks the doctor said when they take out his tonsils out the would also take his adnoids out as well. Ever since he had the surgury he has not snored.
