adolf-hitlers-manic-mannerisms-may-be-attributed-his-crystal-meth-addictionThe leader of the Nazi party Adolf Hitler had a secret addiction to crystal meth, the drug which is the focus of the TV series Breaking Bad.

Referred to as “ice” or “glass”, methamphetamine can be taken orally, sniffed, smoked or injected.

In its most popular crystalline form, crystal meth resembles glass shavings or a crystal rock but is also available in pills and powder.

The drug causes a range of dangerous side-effects alongside its high, such as increased heart rate, paranoia and heart problems.

According to a Daily Mail report, the American military intelligence compiled a 47-page wartime dossier containing information that Hitler was a hypochondriac and took 74 different kinds of medication and pills, including methamphetamine.

The drug produces feelings of euphoria and was also used by the military during World War II for its stimulant effects.

Hitler hooked on drugs

Hitler is thought to have taken crystal meth before a meeting with Mussolini in 1943, in which he talked non-stop for two hours. He also had nine injections of Vitamultin, a drug which contained methamphetamine, during the final days in his bunker.

From 1942 until his death in 1945, Hitler was also given intravenous injections of methamphetamine by his personal physician Theodor Morell, dubbed the “Reichsmaster of injections” by Nazis.

In National Geographic channel’s Nazi Underworld – Hitler’s Drug Use Revealed, psychiatrist Professor Nassir Ghaemi claims: “It’s not whether Hitler was an amphetamine addict or not – it’s that Hitler had bipolar disorder and amphetamines made it worse.

“That is the issue. That has never been described before and that would explain a lot why Hitler changed in the late 1930s and the 1940s.”

It’s also claimed by the Discovery Channel that Hitler also took cocaine to clear his sinuses and received injections of bull testicle to improve his libido.

In a 178-page report, dated 12 June 1945, compiled by Dr Erwing Giesing, one of Hitler’s six physicians, the dictator inhaled cocaine to “clear his sinuses” and “soothe” his throat.

Geising also claimed that the Fuhrer “suffered from uncontrollable flatulence”.




Hitler’s secret addiction to crystal meth: The Fuhrer took ‘Breaking Bad’ drug before ranting at Mussolini… and in his last days in the bunker

  • A 47-page dossier compiled by American Military Intelligence claims Hitler took 74 different medications including crystal meth-amphetamines
  • He was not a pervert nor homosexual and his sexual organs showed no indication of abnormality.
  • The Second World War ditty was wrong – Hitler was not monorchid

Adolf Hitler was a regular user of crystal meth – one of the most feared and addictive illegal substances on today’s black market and the drug at the heart of the hit TV series Breaking Bad – research has shown.

A 47-page wartime dossier compiled by American Military Intelligence reveals that Hitler, a notorious hypochondriac, took an astonishing 74 different medications including crystal methamphetamines.1413056198300_wps_33_Adolf_Hitler_1889_1945_Au

Manufactured by the fictional teacher-turned-drug dealer Walter White in Breaking Bad, the drug is prized by addicts for the feelings of euphoria it produces. But it was also valued by the military during the war as a drug which could help combat the effects of fatigue.

The Fuhrer is believed to have taken crystal meth before a meeting with Mussolini in the summer of 1943, when he ranted non-stop for two hours. And he had nine injections of a drug called Vitamultin, which contained meth-amphetamine, during his final days in his bunker.

The dossier also debunks one of the most enduring legends about the Fuhrer – the claim that he lost a testicle when he was injured at the Battle of the Somme. Morale-boosting ditty ‘Hitler has only got one ball’ was popular during the Second World War and his admirer Unity Mitford suggested he ‘lacked something in the manly department’.

But the American records, which feature in a Channel 4 documentary, show the dictator was not monorchid (the medical term for being born with one testicle). They also shoot down claims that Hitler was a predatory homosexual who massacred 150 supporters to hide his secret.

An entry written in November 1945, based on the Fuhrer’s medical records and interviews with doctors who treated him, including his physician Dr Theodor Morell, states: ‘He was neither a pervert nor a homosexual. His sexual organs showed no indication of abnormality.’

Hitler fell under the spell of Dr Morell, who ran a clinic in Berlin, in 1936. He gave him medication called Mutaflor to cure stomach cramps, and Hitler became a devotee. Morell then prescribed the barbiturate Brom-Nervacit, the morphine-based drug Eukodal, bulls’ semen, to give him a testosterone boost, and Pervitin, a pill containing crystal meth.

Morell also gave him two artificial stimulants, Coramine and Cardiazol. To counteract the effect of the stimulants, Morell gave Hitler more sedatives. By the end of 1943, the Fuhrer was dependent on a destructive mix of uppers and downers.

Bill Panagopoulos, an American collector who discovered the dossier, said: ‘Morell was a quack and a fraud and a snake oil salesman.

‘He should not have been practicing medicine anywhere outside a veterinary clinic.’

He added: ‘Some [of the drugs] were innocuous, some not so innocuous, some poisonous. Did he develop a dependence on any of these drugs? Which of these drugs, if any, were addictive? And did he become addicted to them? I’d be interested to know what the combination of these medications would do to someone who’s otherwise in good health.’

    He was also a vegan who insisted on eating raw vegetables, which also contributed to his severe flatulence problem. From what I’ve read about it, it was pretty harsh to have to be in a meeting with this guy even before you consider his personality (lol)
