I agree wholeheartedly.  Why would you want to take something if you don't
need it?  In spite of what "they" say, there are side effects to all
medications.  Even the almighty Rezulin is now known to possibly cause some
type of liver damage, and they are recommending that everyone who takes it
get liver testing done yearly.
