Finasteride

It has just been revealed that Donald Trump takes a drug called Finasteride.  This medicine was originally developed, and still widely used, for treating benign enlarged prostate conditions, but was then found to be effective in preventing hair loss, which is apparently why Trump takes it.

A couple of remarks about this.  First, from the Washington Post:

"a recent study demonstrated changes in the levels of certain steroids in cerebrospinal fluid of men taking finasteride for hair loss. These steroids have been shown to influence brain function, and their presence may help explain the profound psychological changes such as depression and suicidality that have been associated with finasteride use."

And an enlarged list of potential side effects, from the Post Finasteride Syndrome Foundation:

"The most common persistent side effects of finasteride are loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, Peyronie’s disease, penile shrinkage, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment, insomnia, severely dry skin and tinnitus. These can last for years after stopping the drug."

Well, it might explain a lot.



Another Thought:  One of the possible side effects is insomnia.  Is that why he is always tweeting in the middle of the night?  And if so, doesn't that show that he is already suffering mental side effects from this drug?


Bolding by Green Eagle, just to highlight the symptoms that could interfere with the mental processes of a President.  I don't give a flying fuck if he has erectile dysfunction; I actually suspected that long ago.

You forgot to highlight "penile shrinkage". LOL 😃 But then, maybe it can't get much smaller.

This is useful information and needs to be widely spread. No one can welcome the thought of a President prone to panic attacks and cognitive impairment on top of the narcissistic disorder we already know about. And while it doesn't matter to us if he suffers from dongwilt or "shrinkage", just imagine how he would react if speculation about such things became commonplace. He'd work himself into such a fury of Tweeting in defense of the magnitude of his yuuuuge orange phallus that he might even slow down the pace of fascist executive orders a bit. Anything to keep the pressure up and force him to make his unhinged nature undeniable even to his supporters.

Well, there is that. You guys may have not noticed this, because I just added it at the end of the post, but another side effect of this drug is insomnia. Maybe that explains the tweeting at all hours of the night.

I've wondered why he is tweeting at 3 in the morning. The man is fucked up!
