    Drug Injury Attorneys Investigate Deadly Sleeping Pills

    By: Seeger Weiss LLP on April 9, 2012

    The lawyers of the drug injury practice of Seeger Weiss LLP announced a new investigation this week into a potential lawsuit against the manufacturers of several different sleeping pills. 

    The lawyers of the drug injury practice of Seeger Weiss LLP announced a new investigation this week into a potential lawsuit against the manufacturers of several different sleeping pills. Dozens of recent studies of sleeping pills have indicated that popular sleeping pills like Ambien, Benadryl and Barbiturates carry high mortality risks that put the patients who use them to get to sleep in danger of never waking up. Among other disturbing figures, these sleep studies have uncovered the fact that patients who take sleeping pills die 4.6 times as often within 2.5 years as those who don’t. Additional data has demonstrated that sleeping pills are associated with several types of cancer. In fact, people who take over 132 sleeping pills per year have a 35% increased risk of developing cancer within the next 2.5 years.

    Examples of Commonly Prescribed Sleeping Pills with Risks of Cancer and Death:

    • Zolpidem (Ambien, Stilnox)
    • Temazepam (Restoril)
    • Eszopiclone (Lunesta)
    • Zaleplon (Sonata)
    • Triazolam (Halcion)
    • Flurazepam (Dalmane, Dalmadorm)
    • Estazolam (ProSom)
    • Quazepam (Doral)
    • Barbiturates (especially Luminal)
    • Antihistamines, mainly diphenhydramine (Benadryl)

    Seeger Weiss LLP, an award-winning, national plantiffs’ firm, is offering to review the case of anyone who has been harmed by a prescription sleeping pill. Visit their investigation page for more information.
