SMH Man Claims that Pain Killers "Turned Me Gay"

Here's today's "Oh really?" story. A man believes a painkiller he was taking has turned him gay.

23-year-old Scott Purdy says he was a "hot-blooded heterosexual" until he started taking Pregabalin, also known as Lyrica.

Purdy thinks the drug caused him to lose attraction to women. He dumped his girlfriend and is now attracted to men.

Documented side effects of Pregabalin are mood swings and loss of libido - so, there is that.

What do you think about his claim? Do you think medicine could swing a person one way or another? Do you know anyone taking this drug?
