Calling all long-suffering, sleep-deprived partners: Help is on its way!

A company has come forward this week claiming that they have invented a pill that, when administered once every night, could put a stop to snoring for good. 

It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, keep scrolling to read the full details…

Whether you’re a snorer yourself or you’re simply the forbearing partner who shares a bed with a serial snorer, you’ll know just how infuriating the sound can be.

These people know, that’s for sure…

A newly developed pill may be the savior for snorers and their long-suffering partners, with claims that it could help ease symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

Which, for now, is known as AD109.

But have simply been repurposed to help those with sleep apnoea – the official name given to the condition that causes breathing to stop and start while you sleep.

This is widely used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, by increasing levels of a brain chemical known as noradrenaline to help improve concentration.

This is commonly prescribed to people with urinary incontinence, reducing spasms in muscles that control the bladder.

How can these 2 seemingly random drugs help with combating snoring?

The scientists working on the new pill believe the noradrenaline could help keep airway muscles in good condition, while they’re confident the oxybutynin could help hold the tongue in place, rather than letting it flop over and block the throat – which can cause snoring.

The initial results of the trials have so far suggested that the pill could ease snoring problems by up to seventy-four percent.

Sadly, it’s still early days, so we might be waiting a while until this pill is ready to hit the shelves. Phase 2 clinical trials are set to begin next month. Okay, snoring is mostly annoying but, sometimes, it can be downright funny. Keep scrolling to read about the husband who got a photo of his wife snoring tattooed onto his skin…
