Hi there,

I notice WSC dataset has an interesting variable sedative_med indicating whether the subject is taking sedatives. I am curious about is it possible to know which (type of) sedatives the subject was taking?

Thanks

The WSC team let me know that they do not have plans to share medication lists for each WSC subject. They did highlight that the Manual of Procedures (https://sleepdata.org/datasets/wsc/files/documentation/WSCS_Manual_of_Operations.pdf - pages 41-46) specifies the drug groupings that went into variables such as sedative_med.
