(NEWSER) – About 4% of Americans aged 20 and older—some 8.6 million of us—turn to prescription drugs like Lunesta and Ambien to catch a few winks, a study finds. In the first federal study on usage, researchers followed 17,000 people between 2005 and 2010. A quarter of them had enough trouble sleeping that they talked to their doctors about it, NBC News reports; nationwide, some 50 million to 70 million suffer sleep disorders or deprivation, officials say.
