PHILADELPHIA -

We know taking sleeping pills can be dangerous. But now we're hearing more and more people are in the hospital because of them.

In fact, there has been a dramatic increase in emergency room visits related to medications like Ambien.

The study from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services administration found that nearly 20,000 people, mostly women, were sent to the E.R. in 2010 because of an adverse reaction to the sleeping pills.

People report having reactions like hallucinations, paranoia, confusion and drowsiness.

Dr. Mike Cirigliano was live on "Good Day" this morning with more details on the warning.
