To Sleep, Perchance To "Walk, Drive, Eat Or Engage In Other Activity"

A great tomorrow starts tonight
-slogan for Lunesta. a prescription hypnotic

Part of voice over for Lunesta commercial:

Until you know how you react to Lunesta you should not drive or operate machinery. Do not take Lunesta with alcohol. Call your doctor right away if after taking Lunesta you walk, drive, eat or engage in other activities while asleep.

In rare cases severe allergic reactions can occur. Most sleep medicines carry some risk of dependency. Side effects may include unpleasant taste, headache, drowsiness, and dizziness.

I think I'll pass. And why isn't walking, driving, eating, or engaging in other activities listed under side effects?
