These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An indi vidual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

[posted 03/18/2000]
Question: I AM SOMEWHAT A SNORER. I HAVE NO PROBLEM GOING TO OR STAYING A SLEEP. IN THE PAST MONTH MY HUSBAND SAYS IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE. I HAVE STARTED TAKING LIPITOR, COULD THIS HAVE ANY CONNECTION? A FEW YEARS AGO I WAS OPERATED ON FOR A DEVEATED SEPTRUM AND I DON'T HAVE MUCH SINUS PROBLEMS.
aNY SUGGESTIONS?

Answer: Not probably, usually weight gain will be the culprit. Ask your husband if you stop snoring, this is called sleep apnea and may need to be evaluated by a sleep specialist. Let your md know if you do stop, especially if you have a lot of daytime fatigue/uncontrolled sleepiness-very indicative of sleep apnea.
