This Sleep Aid Raises Heart Attack Risk 50%A recent report presented by Taiwanese researchers at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting reveals a truly disturbing fact about a common sleeping aid.

It boosts the chances of cardiovascular disease, heart attack and stroke. And if that wasn’t enough, an unrelated, earlier study linked it to an uptick in cancer-related deaths.

The study conducted at the China Medical University in Taiwan shows that a commonly used sleeping drug called Ambien (generic name Zolpidem) is directly linked to massive increases in heart-related problems.

In fact, researchers discovered that 60 pills taken per year spike the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack) by a whopping 50 per cent.

Another study, presented at the same American Heart Association event in Dallas, revealed that Ambien also raises the risk of aortic dissection. A life-threatening condition where the aorta tears, causing internal bleeding.

Other studies conducted in the past revealed that Ambien stays in the system much longer than was generally thought. For this reason, many workers in the transportation industries in the US like trucking and rail are no longer allowed to use it because of the insanely long half-life.
