Side effects may include...compulsive gambling?

I caught a TV commercial last night for a drug that treats "Restless Leg Syndrome." Normally I surf to another channel during commercials, but I have a perverse interest in the side effects of drugs and how the makers handle listing them in an ad (If a drug ad claims to cure a specific disease, the law requires them to list the side effects, too).

Up until now, explosive diarrhea and priapism have been my favs.

I thought I'd misheard the ad when sex addiction and compulsive gambling were listed as possible side effects for the RLS drug...but, no, it's real.

Wow.

A new champion.
