No title is the name of my post

Remember my post about the restless leg syndrome med that causes gambling? I just saw one for a well known sleep aid which shall remain nameless because I don't want to get sued. "May cause sleepwalking & then total amnesia of the event". I can only imagine if you have problems sleeping & restless leg syndrome. Gambling & amnesia. Let me rush out & get some of that.

This one made me snort in disbelief. Ain't drugs grand? And I love all the "syndromes" they come up with these days. I'm sure they're real enough. But I mean, does a repugnant odor escape your mouth when you wake up? You must have Bad Breath Syndrome! Are you going to the bathroom more than once a day? You must have Normal Bodily Function Syndrome!

Gambling & amnesia--insane. Gotta love the miracle of science.

I think snorting Ritalin did the same thing for author Elizabeth Wurtzel in her memoir, MORE, NOW, AGAIN. This whole RLS may give new life to addicts everywhere...

My next made-up-on-a-whim meme? Invent your own pharmaceutical side effects.

No gambling, but this drug really did make me forget that I answered my phone, got out of bed, into clothes, grabbed my car keys and drove off to see someone, had a conversation, drove home and came back in one piece without injuring anyone. Oh yeah, my garage door opener wasn't hooked up yet, so I had to open and shut it by hand. Scared the living sh&t outta me and I flushed those puppies down the drain. No more ambien for me - EVER.

That being said, these commercials are pretty interesting!
