FDA Wants Better Warnings For Sleep Medications

SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1 The FDA has asked manufacturers of thirteen sleep medications to give stronger, more detailed warnings regarding the dangers of using these medications. Some dangers include sleep-driving, sleep-walking, using the phone, eating and other activities all undertaken without even remembering that they took a pill. Also, there have been reported cases of people suffering severe allergic reactions that can be life threatening. The drugs of concern include: Ambien, Doral, Medpointe, Dalmane, Carbatrol, Halcion, Lunesta, Placidly, Prosom, Restoril, Rozerem, Ranbaxy and Sonata. Ask your doctor about how to take these medications safely. For more information, see http://www.fda.gov
