To add to Hillary Clinton’s woes, her blood-clot medication causes dementia. A Limerick.

Researchers have found that patients on the clot-preventing drug warfarin showed a higher dementia risk if their blood levels of the medication were  too high or too low.

Mrs. Clinton is being treated with the drug Coumadin to help prevent blood clots, which she experienced in 1998, 2009, and 2012. Coumadin (also called warfarin) is an anticoagulant intended to prevent blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes.

Warfarin has a long list of other nasty side effects, including bleeding gums, blood in the urine, blurred vision, chest pain, peeling skin, serious bone loss, and confusion. It can also cause necrosis—the death of skin tissue. One study found that long-term warfarin use after myocardial infarction (that is, after a heart attack) did not reduce mortality or reinfarction, but is associated with significantly more major bleeding.

One more thing. Warfarin is used as rat poison, and now some rats develop tolerance.

The Limerick:

That rat-poison Warfarin thinner

that Hillary takes before dinner.

Her dementia shows

as its side-effect grows.

They  say that she still is a winner
