Claims over congestion drugs

A man who claims that drugs he took for nasal congestion turned him into "psychotic and bizarre monster" and increased his sex drive is suing Camden and Islington Health Authority and consultant Howard Jacobs for around £5m. Magazine publisher Richard Davies, 50, who went bankrupt four years ago owing £500,000, claims the drug wrecked his life and made him do irrational things. He says he never gave his informed consent to the dopamine drugs he was given from 1989 or was told what the side-effects of the drug could be. He says that the drug made him reckless with money.
