Bacterial superinfections, including pneumonia, are frequent complications of influenza‐like illness (ILI). Clinical and laboratory evidence suggests that benzodiazepines and Z‐drugs may influence susceptibility to infections and mortality. We investigated whether benzodiazepines and zopiclone modify the occurrence of ILI‐related pneumonia and mortality.
