The pharmaceutical concern will pay the man 500 thousand euros (45.3 million rubles) compensation for side effects from the drug Cabaser.

The man took the medicine from 2001 to 2006, unaware that his unnatural prowess was related to the pills. Pfizer made information about the unusual effect of the drug only a year after the Italian refused it.

The cure for Parkinson's disease may have been effective, but it ruined the Italian's life. He not only spent all his savings on women and gambling, but also stole 100 thousand euros (9 million rubles) at work, which he immediately spent in an online casino.

Having received compensation from Pfizer, the unwitting carousel plans, first of all, to return the stolen money to his former employer.

It is possible that Pfizer will find an application for the unexpected effect of the drug, because it is thanks to the side effect that their own development of Viagra, created not as a means for arousal, became famous.
