Hi - just heard on TV that tomorrow Dr. Oz is going to have new FDA regulations on sleeping pills - they are saying they can cause cancer and believe the sleep disorder dr. from Web MD is on the show.

I have been taking Lunesta for several years - never upping the dose and now am worried about this causing cancer.

Can someone let me know what is going on with all the sleeping meds now all causing cancer. There are a lot of worried people out there - hope you can explain what is happening for we insomniacs. Thank you.
