Abstract
zolpidem, zopiclone, eszopiclone and zaleplon, also known as ‘Z-drugs’, are commonly used as alternatives to benzodiazepines (BZDs) to treat insomnia. Z-drugs are often perceived as safer than BZDs. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the association between Z-drugs and fracutres, falls and injuries.
