Are there any cross sectional study about the risk of uses sedative medication?

- Answered 9 Oct 2019 Conflict of interest declaration: None There appear to be! I've carried out the following search https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=%22Hypnotics+and+Sedatives%2Fadverse+effects%22%5BMajr%5D+AND+%22cross-sectional%22%5BTitle%2FAbstract%5D This has two main components: 1) "Hypnotics and Sedatives/adverse effects[Majr]" - This is the MeSH term for adverse events associated with sedatives (and hypnotics). The [Majr] restricts the papers to where it is a major element of the paper. 2) "cross-sectional[Title/Abstract]" - This look for any mention - in the title or abstract - of the phrase "cross-sectional" This returns 34 results. This might miss some and may include some that aren't what you're interested in. However, it appears you're just after any example - so hopefully it'll suffice. FYI https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=%22Hypnotics+and+Sedatives%2Fadverse+effects%22%5BMesh%5D+AND+%22cross+sectional%22 returns 117 results, you'll hopefully see how we've made the search less specific.
