That new medicine "Mirapex", used for treating Parkinson's and Restless Leg Syndrome has some possible side effects.

One of which is an increase in compulsive gambling.

I swear to God

That's what I said. I'd heard it on the tv ad twice and thought...they must be saying "gamboling" not "gambling"

But I looked it up on Wikipedia, and Gambling it is...

I actually heard that on a commercial too and seriously thought I was hearing things. Weird.

Although my favorite is still the pills that are supposed to help you sleep... one possibly side effect- "may cause drowsiness." WTF? Damn sure hope so!

That sucks.

I take Ritalin. One side effect is increased horniness.

and i think another is increased sexual urges too. so it will make your legs stop hurting but will leave you broke from the gambling so you won't have time to take care of the sexual urges so you will have to take paxil to make you feel happier lol before you know it you will be on more meds than Ozzy
