His comments come as the NRL begins testing players for the sleeping pill Stilnox and other prescription drugs, in addition to existing tests for.

"Widespread is the word I'd use. I think it's a problem which is involved in the NRL and also, following discussion with people in other codes, it's a problem in other codes as well.".

Sam Sorrenti, a spokesman for the NRL Doctors' Association, says sleeping drug abuse is not common in the league, but "we would rather stop it before it becomes a problem".

The practice of mixing sleeping pills with alcohol and energy drinks is widespread in the National Rugby League, a club doctor has told the ABC.

Sanofi, the company which makes Stilnox, says last year its "adverse event reporting centre directly received 24 individual reports of suspected adverse events from consumers taking Sanofi's Zolpidem products".

But prominent GP and former head of the Australian Medical Association, Professor Kerryn Phelps, says athletes "stay right away from Stilnox".

"The potential side effects are potentially life-threatening.
