Did you know?

Clomipramine is an anti-depressant. Typical effects include elevation of mood, increased physical appetite and a boost in appetite. Side effect may include dizziness, dry mouth, sweating and in very rare cases…orgasms while yawning. In 1995 an article in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry reported that 4 patients experienced this very unusual and not entirely unpleasant reaction while on the drug. As of 2006 it was estimated that approximate 5% of patients taking Clomipramine have the yawn induced orgasms.

    Food-gasms, I get! Medically induce yawn-gasms! Woah! (Mind is blown… 😛 )

    The last time I had to go under anasthesia to get a bladder tumour removed, the anasthesiologist came to talk to me, and being a questioning sort, I asked him what he was using. Turned it he was using Propofol, and once I made the requisite bad-taste Michael Jackson joke, he suggested I be prepared for one odd side effect. Apparently, many people who get Propofoled have rather vivid sexual dreams while under. Me? Nuthin. Bah.
