Didiet Jambart started taking the drug Requip manufactured by GlaxoSmithKiline to treat his Parkinson’s disease, in 2003. The medication turned the married father into a gay sex addict and compulsive gambler, who even stole from his friends and family, and sold his children’s toys to fund his habits.
He advertised himself for gay sex and lost a huge amount of money in online gambling. Before Jambart started taking Requip, he was considered a model member of the community he lived in. According to media reports, the behavior stopped, once Jambart, a former bank manager, stopped taking the drug.
They’re trying to say the drug made him gay? YEAH! It does sound like the drug had some issue with impulsive behavior and/or inhibitions, but I’m scratching my head on this one.
Still really bizarre story, had to share.
