whether insomnia meds (Ambien, Sonata, etc) increase the risk of dying
News reports are keeping patients up at night worrying about whether insomnia meds (Ambien, Sonata, etc) increase the risk of dying.
They're hearing sleep meds kill half a million people per year.
This all stems from a new study suggesting that people prescribed common sleeping pills (temazepam, zolpidem, etc) have a higher mortality risk. One theory is that these meds may prevent proper breathing.
