When it became clear that his sexual preference had changed, Scott explained that he was surprised as well because, prior to using pregabalin, he was straight and never had an interest in men.
In a surprising turn of events, an English man says he was turned gay by the painkillers he took after he met with an accident as the drug was prescribed for a broken foot.
Purdy says she was "relatively understanding".
He said he lost his sexual attraction to women and broke up with his girlfriend when a GP prescribed the medication earlier this year, just days before Scott realised he was suddenly attracted to men.
"I'm really happy now I'm on it". And right from the start I didn't know if it was the pill [that] did this to me or whether it opened me up to be happier. The fear is if I stop taking it, I'll go back to what I was, but I don't want to do that.
Pregabalin, originally marketed as Lyrica by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, is a drug used to treat chronic pain, anxiety and epilepsy.
Writing on his website, he admitted that he didn't know why this reaction had been noted by some patients but was adamant that "it can" happen.
'Pregabalin is also used to control paranoia and anxiety. I'm not a doctor but I'm going to go out on a limb and say Scott here has always wanted to bang dudes but was scared of the social stigma of being gay.

Man claims painkillers he took to treat an injury made him a homosexual.
But Dr. Ranj Singh, an NHS doctor, presenter and author, told Purdy that the drug had not made him gay, but had instead likely brought his true sexuality to the surface.
He said being on the drug made more "open and not bothered what people think or say".
'The clinical effectiveness of this medicine has been demonstrated in a large number of robust clinical trials among thousands of patients living with these conditions.
The spokesman added: "If you are taking a medicine and experience any unexpected side effects, we recommend that you immediately report these to your doctor or to another healthcare professional, such as a nurse or carer".
