Dangerous Side Effects
Last week President Donald Trump’s long time personal physician disclosed that the leader of the free world takes a small daily dose of the drug finasteride ― otherwise known as Propecia ― which is used to treat male-pattern baldness. It seems that Trump hopes to save what is left of his hair that seems to be fleeing as quickly as his GOP political allies. What is most disturbing about this, all punch lines aside, is that the safety of the drug has since been come into question.
“The FDA-approved pill has been called into question, with emerging research and a slew of lawsuits suggesting that finasteride may be more dangerous than previously believed,” reported Men’s Journal. “Users report that its side effects — inability to orgasm, painful erections, chronic depression, insomnia, brain fog, and suicidal thoughts — can last long after patients stop taking the pill.”
With this new information we may be able to understand why the commander in chief of the greatest superpower on earth decides to go after celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger over Celebrity Apprentice ratings. We can only hope that Trump decides to sacrifice his dreams of flowing locks in order to effectively perform his presidential duties.
