Did Propecia Save Donald Trump’s Hair But Kill His Sex Life?
President Trump’s long time physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein revealed that although Mr. Trump is extremely healthy, he is taking a prostate-related drug called Finasteride — not for an enlarged prostate but instead to prevent hair loss!
At 70 years old, President Trump’s illustrious head of golden hair is his trademark and evidently it is important enough to ignore the risks associated with this prescription medication.
As Propecia became wildly popular among younger sexually active men for hair loss prevention, studies began to surface exposing sexual side effects. Approximately 2-4% of men who use Propecia, are reported to have libido, ejaculation and orgasm disorders. It’s undecided whether or not symptoms subside after discontinuing use.
Finasteride was first used to treat men with an enlarged prostate but studies showed that it also had the ‘fortunate’ side effect of slowing down or even reversing hair loss. That’s when pharmaceutical company, Merck began to sell 1mg pills under the brand name, Propecia. This medication prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the primary cause of male pattern baldness.
Michael Ramsey MBA, HCM, the Clinic director of PAI Medical Group in Nashville, a hair restoration facility that has specialized in hair restoration for over 26 years, explains, “Propecia is extremely effective and we continue to prescribe it under close supervision, however, it’s important for men to be educated about all the potential harmful side-effects. Most medications have side effects and for many, the advantages outweigh the risks. “
For patients who are nervous about taking Propecia, there are many effective all natural alternatives. At PAI we offer Follisaw-2 a 640mg all natural DHT blocker as well as Hair Revitalizing Complex, a synergistic formula of all natural supplements which also includes a DHT blocker. Patients may also consider Rogaine (Minoxidil) as well as Platelet Rich Plasma PRP, which has minimal side effects. At PAI we consider FDA approved laser therapy the most effective of all the alternative treatments.
As for Donald Trump, there is a 96% chance that his sex life is doing just fine and his hair isn’t going away any time soon. Only Melania knows the truth and she’s not telling!
