During the campaign, Donald Trump appeared to be the picture of wellness. He kept up a grueling schedule.
Aside from a case of the sniffles during one debate and the fact that he carries a few extra pounds, he showed no signs of ill health.
But unlike other candidates, Donald Trump did not release his medical records. Instead, he had his doctor write a letter attesting to his good health. So there’s a lot we don’t know about his medical history.1
And, like any president, there’s a lot riding on his health. At age 70, Trump is the oldest person to become president.
Dr. Harold N. Bornstein has been Trump’s personal physician since 1980. In a recent interview with The New York Times, he revealed that President Trump takes four medications.2
He takes a hair-growth drug, an antibiotic to control a skin problem, a statin for high cholesterol, and a low-dose aspirin for heart health.
By taking four medications, Trump is actually on far fewer drugs than most seniors. American seniors take an average of 15 prescriptions, according to a study by the American Association of Consultant Pharmacists.3

Are Trump’s Medications Endangering His Health?
According to Dr. Bornstein, President Trump takes these four medications:
Finasteride: Trump gets pharmaceutical help to maintain his trademark robust hair. He uses finasteride to fight baldness. It’s sold under the brand name Propecia.
The pill, which came out in 1997, thickens hair in 65% of those who take it. But it’s linked to serious side effects. They include impotence, insomnia, brain fog, depression, and suicide.
Since 2011, more than 1,200 lawsuits have been filed against Propecia’s manufacturer, Merck. Here’s the worst part: The lawsuits allege that the drug’s side effects don’t go away once it is discontinued.4
Steven Rossello is one of the plaintiffs. Despite stopping the drug in 2010, he says he continues to suffer finasteride-induced depression that cost him his fiancée and his job.
“There’s a lot of talk about sexual side effects,” Rossello says. “But the worst effects are the mental ones.”
Rosuvastatin: This cholesterol-lowering medication is sold under the brand name Crestor. As we’ve told you, statin drugs do little to lower heart attack risk. Statin side effects are notoriously common. A study in JAMA last year found that more than 40% of users suffer muscle pain.5
And that doesn’t even include the many other statin problems listed as “common” on the label. They include cough, sore throat, headaches, skin rash, swollen glands, and trouble swallowing.6
Trump’s sniffles during one of his debates with Hillary Clinton may have been due to rosuvastatin. Another common side effect is runny nose.7
Tetracycline: President Trump takes a long-acting form of this antibiotic to treat rosacea. It’s a common skin condition. It causes redness of the nose and other parts of the face. Except in serious cases, it usually doesn’t cause any functional problems, just cosmetic ones. One survey found that 90% of rosacea patients suffer emotional issues from the condition’s effect on their appearance.8
Like other antibiotics, tetracycline can cause digestive problems. In addition to destroying disease-causing microbes, it also kills your beneficial gut bacteria. This can lead to diarrhea, nutrient deficiencies, and impaired immunity.9
Low-dose aspirin: President Trump takes a daily low-dose aspirin for heart health. A major Harvard study in 2012 found that low-dose aspirin can be protective in people who have suffered a previous heart attack or stroke. In a group of 10,000 such patients, aspirin was found to prevent 250 heart attacks and strokes.
But for President Trump, who has not had a heart attack, taking aspirin probably doesn’t do much good. The study showed that in patients with no prior history of heart problems, only seven patients out of 10,000 are helped. What’s more, 20 out of the 10,000 will suffer stomach bleeding caused by aspirin.10
President Trump is on far fewer drugs than most Americans his age. But like anyone taking pharmaceutical medications, he’s still putting himself at risk for dangerous side effects.
