Pneumonia linked to sleeping pills6th December 2012
Researchers have said that more investigation is needed on the effects of common sleeping pills after a study suggested they may increase the risk of contracting and dying from pneumonia.
Drugs such as diazepam and temazepam, which are known as benzodiazepines, have been linked to the increased risk and those taking the medication are thought to be more likely to die from pneumonia if they contracted it. The findings from the team at Nottingham University were published in the journal Thorax.
