I've been searching the net trying to find one of these anti snore pillows to purchase but can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find one to buy? If not, does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative type of anti snore pillow? I've tried the Soft Cervical Collar's but I find them too hot (especially behind my head on the back of my neck).

Any help would be great!

If you're here in the US, I've heard of a soft cervical collar that's rather inexpensive from I think it was Walgreen's. It is not the Dr. Dakota or Eliminator, but something similar in intent but not design. The intent is to keep your chin from tucking in close to your chest so as not to restrict your breathing. A free simple test to see if any of these will help you is to lie on your bed and tilt your head forward, chin trying to reach your chest position. Take notice if breathing becomes more difficult. If a yes on breathing restriction was noted, then something like these products may help reduce some apnea clusters of events as seen in the OSCAR data program.

Note on fit of any of these: it must be somewhat close fitting so the chin doesn't drop behind the collar or the other devices, but not so tight it's uncomfortable.

If you are using your CPAP and are still snoring, you may need a slight increase in your minimum pressure. Have you tried that?

That is a good point as well. If you have OSCAR, the free report tool, we can evaluate what is happening and advise on possible pressure edits to eliminate the snores that way as well.

Thank you for the replies.

My pressure is good thanks to using OSCAR. I find that program very easy to use and is a great help.

I do tape my mouth when sleeping and my AHI usually comes in around 1 or a bit higher. I would like to try an anti snore pillow to see if I can get any from taping my mouth.

I've ordered the full face Res Med F-30i mask. Now I use a nasal mask.

I want to find a snore pillow that has the same design as the Dr. Dakota or Eliminator Series Anti Snore Pillows

If you are still snoring, your pressure can't be that good. Minimum pressure should be gradually increased.

Moe, I see those Dakota type cushions on a lot of web sites (including Amazon) but they all seem to be sold out.

As an alternative, have you considered an orthopaedic pillow, which supports your head and neck keeping the neck properly aligned?

There was a similar discussion about the inability to find the Dr Dakota product over on cpaptalk forum back in Dec 2019. I think the general consensus is he went out of business. It was like one day it just went poof and was gone and no one had any idea it was maybe in trouble.

No one could find it anywhere online back in Dec.

I'm using a Temerpedic pillow now and sleeping on my side. That seems to work for me. Thank you everyone for your input.

I like my EnduriMed CPAP. That's pretty good, actually I have no complaints about it. The best thing is that I can sleep on my side or stomach.
P.S. When I was looking for a pillow, I came across some nice articles and found mine here
