Parkinson's Drug Causes Gay Sex Addiction?

A 51-year-old Frenchman is taking drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline to court this week, claiming one of its Parkinson's disease medications made him addicted to gay sex and gambling.

Didier Jambart said he started taking the drug, Requip, in 2003. Soon after, he became a gay sex addict, started to cross-dress, and posted graphic photos of himself on websites, according to the Agence France-Presse. His attorneys said that his behavior led him to a situation in which he was raped, causing him psychological trauma.

He also said he started stealing and was depleting his family's savings for Internet gambling.

When he stopped taking Requip in 2005, he said, his sex addiction and gambling streak ended. He is seeking EUR450,000 (US$610,000) from GlaxoSmithKline for selling Requip, which he says is defective.
