Frenchman Claims GlaxoSmithKline Parkinson’s Drug Turned him into Gay Sex Addict

Didier Jambart, a happily married French father, is suing British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, claiming the company produced a defective Parkinson’s Disease drug that turned him into a gay sex addict.

According to the Daily Mail, Jambart, age 52, appeared in a courtroom in the French city of Nantes. He is seeking £390,000 ($627,315) in compensation from GlaxoSmithKline.

Jambart claims that he began taking ReQuip tablets in 2003 to treat his Parkinson’s. “After first taking the drugs I was bursting with energy,” he said. “I would get up at four in the morning and run 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles), but later, it went more than too far.”

How far? Jambart became a gay sex addict. He began exposing himself online and cross-dressing. He claims that his dangerous sexual encounters led to him being raped.

“My life was ruined, my family and I were treated like we had the plague,” Jambart said. Things got so bad that he tried to kill himself eight times.

ReQuip, also known as Ropinirole,  and other Parkinsons’ medications do have a history of causing queer side effects– pun intended. Around 100 other patients have reported similar side affects to those suffered by Jambart. Last year Peter Shepherd, a 60-year-old British man taking generic Cabergoline, another Parkinson’s drug, turned into a sex-crazed transvestite and blew £400,000 ($643,400) on a luxurious lifestyle.
