Could Rump’s drug addictions have contributed to his sudden visit to Walter Reed?


About a year ago, comedians Noel Casler and Tom Arnold accused Donald Trump of abusing Adderall on the set of The Apprentice.This was reported by Daniel Moritz-Rabson in Newsweek, and followed up by discussion including a sober explanation by John Kruse in Medium of why Adderall might be an appropriate treatment for ADHD in Trump.

Adderall is a brain stimulant. In therapeutic doses its side effects can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, as well as trouble sleeping. Serious side effects of Adderall abuse include insomnia, mood swings, panic attacks, chest pain, sexual dysfunction, and even sudden cardiac death, according to a summary by the American Addiction Centers.
