    Wedge pillow for bed

    Hi everyone,

    I’m looking to buy a wedge pillow, as I find I’m coughing and choking on my saliva when sleeping. There are so many options and different degrees of angle.
    Does anyone have any advice?

    Thanks in advance,

    Angie, the head of my bed is raised about 35 degrees, which is a comfortable level for me, but I am completely immobile and need to be aware of downward pressure on my sacral area, so any higher for prolonged periods could make me uncomfortable.

    Because you're getting a standalone wedge cushion, also take into account whether you're a back or side sleeper and if you have any back or shoulder pain regarding the pillow's firmness and size.

    Do you take any meds to reduce saliva production? xx
