I was watching a commercial for a restless leg syndrome medication last night. The usual warnings, it may kill you, see your doctor if your legs get more restlessy. Then came this, "discontinue use if you have an increased urge to gamble".
How does that go exactly? "Well my legs have stopped twitching, but I lost my house in Vegas". This is the only time that I've wished I was a doctor. I want to ask my doctor about this medicine per the commercials instructions. Not because I have restless legs but I just have to know how exactly does a medicine designed to calm down your legs increase your urgency to gamble?
You just know the test group was filled with sarcastic people like me, "Oh yeah, my legs are fine, but I want to hit the slots". Between the two, I would definitely choose the gambling because it's one of the rare moments in life where you can say, "The meds made me do it!". This begs the burning question, if you had to have restless leg syndrome, or a gambling addiction which one would you choose?
