I take ten sleeping tablets a day will this affect

Patient: I take ten sleeping tablets a day will this affect my liver stillnoct

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.You have not told me the dose of the tablets and I cannot confirm if it can cause liver damage. But, based on most of the sleeping pills out there, an acute dose can damage your liver.You should see a Doctor and get a liver function test done. Post this, the Doctor can start you on therapy to protect your liver. This should minimise the damage. Also, if you are young or not very heavy, the damage will be more on the liver.Hope this helps you. All the best.
