for 2-3 months i was totally addicted to sleeping pills (zolfresh 10mg) sometimes even consuming 6 to 7 pills a day generally accompanied with alcohol.
1 month back i completely stopped taking them and now i've noticed a tremendous gain in weight, around 5kgs. the flab kind of hangs down. also i feel breathlessness, palpitation, feeling of fullness even by eating a toast, and feel as if my abdomen is bloated.
is this really related to sleeping pills side effects or something else ?
