Parkinson’s drugs stimulate urge to bet
By Nigel Hawkes, Health Editor
PATIENTS treated with drugs for Parkinson’s disease can turn into compulsive gamblers, a study suggests…

And taking an experimental drug is what kind of gambling?

The article goes on:

Six patients also developed other behavioural problems, including compulsive eating, increased alcohol consumption and an insatiable appetite for sex.

Oh my GOD – it turned them into Marines?!?


Drug side effects are no joke. I took an anti-biotic prescription and for the next month I couldn’t pronounce words with ‘K’ in them.

There’s my pitch for stem cell research.

    But those poor little stem cells aren’t given a chance to be implanted into a uterus and then grow into a adult who can then take experimental drugs and develop disturbing behavioral side effects!!! Ah, the humanity!
