The Safety Risk Associated With Z-Medications To Treat Insomnia In Substance Use Disorder Patients

Usman Riaz, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College Of Medicine

Abstract: Z-medications are commonly prescribed in clinical practices despite the safety concerns. Although these medications are considered safer than benzodiazepines, both act on GABA-A receptors as an allosteric modulator. In clinical practice, the risk profile for both medications is not any different, particularly in substance use disorder population.
