The maker of Ambien is bracing for legal war with sleepwalkers, sleep-eaters, and sleep-drivers. Several Ambien users are suing Sanofi-Aventis, claiming that the pill caused them to walk, drive, or eat insatiably while sleeping. They're urging others to join a class-action suit. The company says: 1) the drug's label warns that rare side effects include sleepwalking and big appetites; 2) it's supposed to be taken under a doctor's supervision; and 3) it was carefully tested under the prescribed conditions. The company's lawyers will meet with plaintiffs in June. (For Human Nature's previous updates on sleep-eating and sleep-driving, click here and here.)
