Pathologic gambling is an impulse control disorder previously reported to complicate dopamine agonist therapy in patients with Parkinson disease. It has not been described in association with dopamine agonist therapy of other conditions. We report three patients treated in our sleep disorders center who developed pathologic gambling while receiving treatment with dopamine agonists for restless legs syndrome.
