X-ing, Pex-ing

If Mirapex, the "restless leg syndrome" drug, may cause strong sexual urges, as its disclaimer says, how long before the club kids start grinding it into their bumper? The disclaimer also says that Mirapex may cause compulsive gambling (as the class-action lawsuits attest) and may cause you to fall asleep during "important tasks" such as driving. Mirapex is also used to treat Parkinson's disease, making the possible side-effects seem a reasonable risk. For restless leg syndrome, not so much. Of course, not having RLS, my opinion doesn't mean much. Some say that RLS is an "invented" disease created to sell the drug and that most people live with it without much issue. Opinions?
