Re: Are the 'Z-drugs' really carcinogenic?

The 'z-drugs' are the newer non-benzo sleeping tablets; zopiclone (Zimovane), eszopiclone (Lunesta), zolpidem (Ambien) and zaleplon (Sonata), most likely because they begin with a 'z'.

As for the older benzos, they are very widely used in research labs, but I'm not sure that they were ever tested to the same standards as newer drugs. They were introduced in the same era as thalidomide, and research is much more stringent now than it was back then. It's strange that all the z-drugs should cause cancer because they each belong to a different chemical class.
