The medication Hillary Clinton has taken since 1998 to deal with her blood-clotting problems may have side effects that are hazardous to her health, according to medical literature.
Clinton’s publicly available medical records show she was first placed on Lovenox, a blood thinner, in 1998 to treat blood-clotting problems in her legs on extended airplane flights. The anticoagulant was replaced with Coumadin – also called Warfarin – which she began taking after developing a blood clot in her head from a fall and a concussion she suffered in December 2012.
The Atlanta-based Alliance for Natural Health warns in a bulletin, titled “Hillary Clinton Prescribed a Dangerous Blood-Thinner,” that Coumadin has a long list of nasty side effects.
They include blurred vision and confusion – both of which Hillary Clinton has been reported to have experienced – plus a tendency to bleed excessively even from minor injuries.
After Clinton recovered sufficiently from the concussion and brain clot suffered in December 2012 to testify before Congress on Benghazi in January 2013, the New York Daily News reported she was wearing medically modified eyeglasses. Attached to each lens by transparent adhesive tape was a Fresnel prism designed to treat the double vision resulting from the concussion and blood clot.
On Nov. 16, 2015, Judicial Watch released an email exchange between her aides Huma Abedin and Monica Hanley dated Jan. 26, 2013, regarding Clinton’s schedule. They indicated it was “very important” to go over phone calls with Clinton because the former secretary of state was “often confused.”
