Trump Takes Propecia, A Hair-Loss Drug Associated With Mental Confusion, Impotence
In a snicker-worthy disclosure by President Donald Trump’s longtime personal physician, readers of The New York Times learned Thursday 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.  The revelation by Dr. Harold N. Bornstein that the president uses a prostate-related drug to grow scalp hair was not previously known publicly, according to the Times story, and appears to explain why Trump has a very low level of prostate specific antigen, or PSA, a marker sometimes us...

The study asked men to remember what their alcohol consumption was before taking the drug – on average about five years previously. This is likely to be less re...
