FDA approves drug for curbing involuntary giggles, tears

If you've ever burst out laughing at a funeral -- or burst into tears at a board meeting -- you can sympathize with those who suffer from pseudobulbar effect, a neurologic condition that causes involuntary laughing or crying. We wrote about the condition, which is also called involuntary emotional expression disorder, earlier this year -- and now the Food and Drug Administration has just approved the first-ever treatment for the little known condition, Reuters is reporting. We must know: Tell us about the most inappropriate time a case of the giggles has hit you. (Crybabies, same question applies to you.)
