"My Snoring Solution" head gear - anyone tried it?

Postby rob 46 » Tue Mar 31, 2009 3:19 pm

I can't seem to post a link to the site that sells it but if you Google it you'll see what it is. It's a blue and black head apparatus that supposed to keep your lower jaw in a position so that your air way is not closed off while sleeping.

Has anyone tried it?

I was diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea and I was fitted with a $2000 TAP appliance. Seems to be working. My wife says I'm breathing way better and not snoring. But I hate the thing in my mouth. Getting used to it - took 3 to 4 months but still wish I didn't have to wear it. Has anybody tried this "My Snoring Solution" device? Can't find any independent reviews on any forums. I'm thinking it might be more comfortable then the Tap. Now I have high blood pressure and I'm thinking that it's from all the years I had the sleep apnea and didn't do anything about it. I'm 56 years old a real slim guy and am in great health aside from this apnea and now the high blood pressure. First medical problems I've ever had. Bummed about that. Anyway - looking for opinions from people who have tried this new device. I'd love to not have to use this TAP.

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

Posting guidelines do not allow the posting of links to any commercial sites (such links will be moderated). Any links included in your first post will not be permitted, as most drive bye spammers use this method. It is part of the 'system'.

I am not familar with this 'device', but suggest that you talk to your sleep doctor about it. There are many devices available, many of them of a 'quack' nature.

It is better to get professional advice before purchasing 'devices'.

Kind regards.

I purchased that device, the blue and black band that goes around the head and is supposed to keep the jaw forward. I don't notice any difference in my sleep problem. Finally got the sleep study done, go back Sunday night for the CPAP titration YIPPEE! I can't wait for a good nights sleep.

Hello there
I have been working in the field for many years. I also lead a support group. I assume that you are wondering about the chinstrap marketed by "my snoring solution". Just think about it, this is just a chintrap, and if you are a cpap user you know what a chinstrap is for; they keep the mouth closed to prevent dryness. The company exagerate the claims by saying that it moves the jaw forward and that it prevents snoring and sleep apnea. I have no idea how it does that. Call them up and ask them. They claim that research have been done. Oh yeah, has it been published? they provide a table on 7 subjects, is this research on family and friends. I have no knowledge chinstraps have been recommended for use to prevent snoring or sleep apnea. Oral appliances have been recommended but they are somewhat uncomfortable and maybe expensive. Anyway, this particular chinstrap, is no better and does no more than any other chinstrap. Good luck.

Hello,

This is my first post on this site. I purchased the "my snoring solution" chin strap at a very inflated price. I was desperate to help my wife get a better nights sleep. I have not been to any clinics for sleep apnea, nor have I seen a doctor about my snoring problem. The device did not work at all for me and returning it was very difficult. Still trying. I just found out there is a $25 disposal fee that will be taken off your original charge of about $70. I was desperate and got suckered into this thinking it would be easy to return - they get your money either way. Stay away from this product.

I wear a chin strap WITH my cpap. A chinstrap alone wouldn't reposition my jaw to stop the apneas. PT Barnum once said that "a sucker is born every minute". Don't get suckered into a quick solution. The only way to REALLY know if you have apnea is by having a sleep study.

My BP problem (150's/110) resolved to NORMAL after going on cpap. A chinstrap alone wouldn't resolve the air strangulation problem.

As of today, the Better Business Bureau in South Alabama (Mobile) gives them a C- rating. I had a hard time finding them on the BBB. Currently, their business name is listed as [Commercial link deleted. Please refer to posting guidelines]. Note that their return policy shows a 25% medical waste disposal fee and has some pretty specific requirements for the returns to be processed.

My Snoring Solution

Postby Sarge3012 » Fri Jul 03, 2009 5:05 pm

I am a former white-collar crime detective. I bought a "My Snoring Solution" chin strap. It was not what I expected, and I could not use it due to a deviated septum. I returned it by carefully following their return policy. This was over a month ago. I never received a return. I called many times and left messages to return my calls. Their contact prompt is very vague. You can not get a live human to talk with. I sent several emails. No replies. I sent a letter suggesting that if I did not receive my refund immediately, I was going to use all the former resources available to me from my previous position, i.e., FBI Consumer Fraud Unit, BBB, Alabama Attorney General's Office, etc. A guy called and said they responded to my emails, which was a lie. I very thoroughly monitor my incoming emails. They absolutely did not respond. He said he would immediately refund my money to my credit card account. He didn't.

Monday, I am going to keep my promise to him and pursue all resources I have in order to have this company investigated. I can tell from past experiences that this company has raised several "red flags" in the fraud category. Maybe they are legitimate, but incompetent. Sometime it's hard to determine incompetence from fraud. I will, however, find out which one it is with this company.

I welcome any anyone with similar problems with this company.

Chin strap

Postby christib555 » Fri Jul 10, 2009 12:49 pm

I too have tried the my snorning solutions chip strap. It didn't work for me and I have yet to receive the money back guarantee. Apparently, they use a third party for returns. It is a great scam - they have no proof that I was sent the return requirements and I have no proof that I wasn't sent them. I am out around $90.00. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

My Snoring Solution

Postby Sarge3012 » Fri Jul 10, 2009 6:26 pm

I had to threaten to call the Alabama BBB, Alabama Attorney General's Office, etc. I told them I was going to open a website dedicated to exposing them (which I would have done.) I told them that the 25% charge for toxic waste management was a scam. They probably have a minimum wage-paid kid empty a box of returned chin straps in a fire after the box is filled each day and that was their "professional waste disposal" system. They finally refunded my money.

They do, however, have very specific steps to take when you want a refund after you return their product. It also warns of the 25% charge for waste disposal on any return. The strap I returned was never used by me, so my argument was that I should not be charged the bogus 25% charge.

I followed all the steps. I still had to fight with them for a month to get my refund.

my snoring solution

Postby warorck » Tue Jul 14, 2009 12:56 pm

it is unfortunate that i did not do my home work before buying this product. it is a scam. the product is little more than a $79 rubber band, with no noticable help. the "fine print" imposes a 25% "disposal fee"
stay as far away as possible from this product and tell your friends to to like wise.

My wife is pissed. After paying a ripoff price, the product failed miserably in the area of snoring.

I tried the jaw strap thingy, and it helped a lot. I ended up returning it and had no problem getting my money back at all. I followed the directions, which are not hard to do, and got my money back in less than a week. Maybe if everyone looked closely and followed the directions, it wouldn't be so difficult. It's definitely worth a try!!! :-D

I guess the first question that comes to mind for me is if it works great for you, why did you return it? :)

Because kissysnorer12 is a lying company shill? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shill#Shills_on_the_Internet (seems they are willing to prosecute when it comes to 'medical' thingys kissy.)

Once or twice a year I wake up gasping for breath. It happened again last night. Scary is not the word. It'll probably kill me when my heart is too old to handle the stress. Good thing I saw this forum or I'da been a $75 sucker too.
