While the drug Requip, often taken for Parkinsons & restless leg syndrome, obviously affects brain function, this claim is over-the-top. However given that Big Pharma’s put out some drugs with endless bad side effects, anything is possible. (Raw Story):

Didier Jambart, a married father-of-two who says he has attempted suicide three times, claims he became addicted to Internet gambling, losing the family’s savings and stealing to feed his habit.

He also became a compulsive gay sex addict and began exposing himself on the Internet and cross-dressing. His risky sexual encounters led to him being raped, his lawyers said.

The behaviour stopped when he stopped taking the drugs in 2005 but by then he had been demoted in his defence ministry job and was suffering from psychological trauma resulting from his addictions, his lawyers said.
