Craziest “Side Effects” Ever

So this ad has been showing up on TV lately – a prescription drug called Mirapex that treats “restless leg syndrome” – first of all, this sounds like one of those phony “syndromes” that is probably actually your body telling you to get off the damn couch and take a walk once and a while, but that aside, the ad warns about possible side effects…

…they warn, if you should feel compulsions related to sex or gambling, talk to your doctor…

Sheesh. So your legs will not be restless but you might start walking like you’ve been riding a horse.
So out of curiosity I look around the web and find that lo and behold, a number of law suits have been filed claiming users of the drug developed a compulsive gambling addiction.

Just another lovely “fix” for what ails you.
