    Post Sleep Driving with Sleeping Pills

    March 14, 2007

    The FDA (U.S.) has strengthened the warnings the manufacturers of 13 sleeping medications must include with their products.

    ? Drugs include the popular Ambien and Lunesta
    ? Risks include driving, eating and talking while asleep with no recollection later
    ? Ambien manufacturer: Fewer than one in 1,000 patients reported somnambulism

    Because these medications are intended to put you to sleep, it is important to be able to devote at least 8 hours to uninterrupted sleep.

    A small number of people taking these medications have reported various forms of sleep walking, sleep eating and sleep driving!

    The medications affected are:

    1. Ambien
    2. Butisol sodium
    3. Carbrital
    4. Dalmane
    5. Doral
    6. Halcion
    7. Lunesta
    8. Placidyl
    9. Prosom
    10. Restoril
    11. Rozerem
    12. Seconal
    13. Sonata
