The warning will be printed in a label box — the most prominent of warnings — to ensure that patients and their healthcare professionals take note of the more serious side-effects. The FDA has stated that under its latest safety review, it has found 66 cases of adverse events in which patients who had taken the drugs were engaged in activities such as driving and sleepwalking while they were not fully awake, leading to the death and injuries. The sleeping pills under question — eszopiclone, zaleplon, and zolpidem — are prescribed to help patients fall asleep faster and sleep for longer.

They are sold under different brand names in India. Their common side effects include sleepiness, dizziness, uncoordinated body movements, nervousness and headache. Also read: After giant pharma push, China keeps Indian drug makers waiting.
