watching tv and i see a commercial for restless leg syndrome drug Mirapex and they list one of the side effect as increased gambling. :wtf: their web site says it can cause you to fall asleep without any warning also and cause hallucinations. how does that work. i think that we all need to take pills for everything.

Because most drugs are there to mask an illusive problem not to cure it, its a huge business that could care less if you are healthy or not as long as the can sell you something

there is a new disease or virus that you never heard about that you need to worry about every day and without commercials you would not hear about them.

Where can I get some LOL. j/k

It's all about hooking in Babyboomers who have gotten used to taking pills to fix all of their problems (starting with prozac)

The people that sit and worry about every damn virus and disease that they MAY catch really need to hold their breath for an hour and DIE.

i enjoy it when the side effects are way worse then the "problem" that you are trying to fix.

I get a kick out of some of these side-effects. The gambling one is the best except for glaucoma. You won't have RLS, but you will be blind!


For the nay-sayers out there RLS is real and I'm glad its finally been diagnosed.

I've had RLS since I was a toddler. It is difficult to describe exactly, but it is a neurological disorder that causes pain in my legs. In the past few years I also feel it in my upper arms. I have this uncontrollable ugre to flex my leg muscles and kick. It really sucks because it can keep me up all night. When I get mild bouts I sleep on the floor on my stomach. The pressure on my legs reduces the urge to kick. If it is particularly bad I'll have to sleep in a separate room or my wife won't get any sleep either.

I've found that alcohol and caffeine exacerbate the condition. I've pretty much cut caffeine out of my diet competely. You'll never see my drink coffee and I will rarely have some iced-tea. And I'm not much of a drinker.

Still my RLS acts up a few times a week, and I get the jitters during the day. I am a constant foot-tapper. I've learned to live with it. I hope it'll never get bad enough that I have to take perscription meds.

Nexium - Could lower your blood pressure.

Common side effects - Death.


:laughing: I'd rather deal with high bp than getting any of the side effects they describe.
