The feds are standing up and taking a bow… expecting kudos for a job well done as they’ve FINALLY taken action to help protect patients.
They’ve slapped a frightening new warning on some of today’s most common sleep meds– drugs taken by millions, with many depending on them nightly for sleep.
All I can say is, they don’t deserve a pat on the back.
They should get a kick in the you-know-what instead!
These crooks sat back and watched as their Big Pharma pals reaped billions off of these drugs, knowing about the risks all along – and they did NOTHING.
Now, all these years later… NEARLY THREE DECADES after the first of these meds was approved… they’re finally taking “action”?
It’s practically criminal – especially when, as you’ll see in a moment, there’s a far simpler and much safer way to get sleep tonight and every night.
It’s backed by science… yet they REFUSE to recommend it!
Sleep better – starting TONIGHT
For years, there have been steady complaints of bizarre sleepwalking activity linked to the drugs.
This isn’t just getting up and saying something you don’t remember the next day...
And it’s not a sleepy stagger into the bathroom...
Or downstairs to fall asleep again in front of the TV.
People have been known to get up and leave the house… even drive their cars… all while STILL ASLEEP.
Some of these cases have led to serious injuries, including:
- Gunshot wounds
- Lost limbs
- And at least 20 deaths!
Like I said, this ISN’T new; this has been known for ages, but the FDA is now going to require a warning label over the risk on eszopiclone (Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien and Zolpimist, among others).
And that’s just the IMMEDIATE risk.
The long-term risks… which the FDA won’t even touch… are even MORE frightening, and studies have found sleep drugs can increase your risk of death by more than FIVE TIMES.
These drugs don’t need a WARNING...
They need to be pulled off the market– and replaced with what we KNOW can work effectively, but without any of those insane risks.
Start with melatonin.
The “sleep hormone” can help you get to sleep fast – and ensure you stay asleep, all night long – especially when delivered in a dissolvable form that takes effect quicker since you don’t have to wait for it to digest.
Of course, sleep problems are often a sign of other underlying health conditions that need to be found and fixed.
In older people, it’s often hormonal issues...
But it could also be anything from a drug side effect to infection to a symptom of undiagnosed chronic disease.
