|Negative Effects of Sleeping Pills|
Researchers from a sleep clinic in California revealed that people who get a prescription for sleeping pills five times higher risk of dying compared with non-drinkers sleeping pills.
The study was conducted on 10 529 people who have been prescribed sleeping tablets and 23 600 people who did not. Both groups of respondents have a range of age, health status, as well as the same economic status.
In comparing the two groups, the researchers revealed that people who take 18 sleeping pills in a year, the risk of death 3.6 times higher than those not taking sleeping pills at all. Meanwhile, taking the drug between 18-132 sleeping pill in a year the risk is increased to five times.
