Warning on sleeping pills after Heath Ledger's death

In the wake of Heath Ledger's death, people who use sleep aids (sleeping pills) from time to time should double check to make sure their usage is safe. Since the importance of sleep is always greater for shiftworkers, this is a warning that should be of particular interest to nightshift workers. The Toronto Star published a useful article that is worth reading if you or someone you know uses sleeping pills -- "Desperate for sleep: Keeping sleeping pills on the nightstand is a bad idea for those who need assistance in drifting off."
