Sleeping Pill Use Tied to Poorer Survival for Heart Failure Patients

According to a new study, the use of sleeping pills put people with heart failure at a greater risk of serious heart problems and death. Research found that patients who took sleeping pills were 8 times more likely to be readmitted to the hospital for heart failure or to die from heart-related causes than those who did not take sleeping pills. Although the study could not prove cause and effect, researchers have developed a theory that sleeping pills may affect both breathing and heart function. Via U.S. News. Posted May 17, 2014.
