Beware of sleeping pills , study points out

[box type=”info” align=”” class=”” width=””]Some studies in the United States indicate that some of these drugs have had to do with 20 premature deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning, hypothermia, car accidents and apparent suicide.

Insomnia and sleep problems have become epidemic, so it is logical that the consumption of sleeping pills has increased. Some studies in the United States indicate that some of these drugs have involved 20 premature deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning, hypothermia, car accidents, and apparent suicide.

And with 46 serious injuries, ranging from accidental overdoses, falls and drowning. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that these drugs do not carry a label that clearly warns of possible side effects. That’s why the agency ordered large warnings on a black box on the packaging of three specific sedatives: eszopiclone (sold as Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien). And it calls on patients to always investigate the adverse effects of these drugs before taking them.
