A5: This is a very potent fluorinated cortisone, increasingly persistent in the body, with well known effects of increasing blood pressure. Calcium excretion is increased while sodium is retained.
You may be seeing aspects of chronic fluoride poisoning with adrenal depletion and calcium deficiency. As this worsens, the relative toxicity of fluoride (from any source including the drug) is increased. Look at uptake and accumulation of aluminum and other heavy metals. These are increased by fluoride and can account for blood pressure elevation too.
At Second Look we have a growing file of people who have developed chronic fluoride poisoning illness, many with increased metal toxicity aspects, after taking fluorinated pharmaceuticals like this. Even when minimal fluoride ion is released through metabolism of the drug, endocrine receptor poisoning can be far worse than we thought.
