There was an advertisement in the newspaper today for Requip (ropinirole HCI), a drug designed to help people sleep who suffer from tingling legs at night. The advertisement included this important safety information:
Prescription Requip is not for everyone. Requip tablets may cause you to fall asleep or feel very sleepy during normal activities such as driving; or to faint or feel dizzy, nauseated, or sweaty when you stand up. Tell your doctor if you or your family notices that you develop any unusual impulses or behaviors, such as pathological gambling or hypersexuality. Side effects include nausea, drowsiness, vomitng and dizziness. Most patients were not bothered enough to stop taking Requip.
Of course not. They were enjoying the poker and hookers so much that they hardly minded the vomiting and dizziness.
