Survey: Millions of Americans take sleeping pills
There is more information about how far Americans will go to get a good night's sleep.
A new survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that nine million Americans took a sleeping pill within the last 30 days. That comes out to about 5 percent of American women and about 3 percent of men.
White Americans tend to use sleep drugs like Ambien more than other races.
Most of the people who take the prescription sleep medicine have a diagnosed sleep disorder.
