GlaxoSmithKline, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical giants, has recently been accused of distributing medication for Parkinson’s disease with severe unlisted side effects, including “gay sex addiction.”
For Didier Jambart, a 52-year-old married father, the first side effects included an abundance of energy. But what followed was severe depression and sexual debauchery, including self-exposure on the Internet and an incident in which he was raped. He is now suing GlaxoSmithKline, as he began taking the medication in 2005 while the side-effects were not documented on the packaging until 2006.
And then the story gets weird.
Evidently, over 100 people have reported similar side effects to GlaxoSmithKline, including one man who became a “sex-crazed transvestite” and spent over $600,000 to fuel his lavish lifestyle. While the two men were taking different medications, both were intended to treat Parkinson’s disease and were produced by GSK. Jambart’s case is now pending upon a ruling, which may take place as early as this week. [Source; Image]
