A 51-year-old French man is suing drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline, claiming the prescription he was taking for Parkinson’s disease turned him into an Internet gambling and gay sex addict. According to AFP News, the man’s lawyers say their client’s behavior changed drastically in 2003 after he first started taking Requip. The married father of two became addicted to online gambling. He lost the family’s savings and began stealing to keep up his habit. DIDIER JAMBART says he also became a compulsive gay sex addict and began cross-dressing. His lawyers say he was raped during one of his risky sexual encounters. The man also attempted suicide three times.

In 2005, Jambart stopped taking the drugs. When he went off Requip, the behavior stopped, but not before he was demoted in his job. His attorney says he has suffered psychological trauma resulting from his addictions. In 2006, a label was added to Requip, warning users of the drug’s potential side effects. Jambart is suing his neurologist and GlaxoSmithKline for over $600-thousand-dollars because he wasn’t warned of the risk of compulsive behaviors even though it was a known possible side effect when he began taking the drug
