Thing that people don't understand is that FDA does NOT limit drugs
which are not
tested for any particular use. They only accept test run by the
manufacturers,
of course after checking the tests over, and then put their rubber stamp
on
it. The first apporval for ANY human use is all that's needed, after
that any
doctor can prescribe the medication for anything he wishes. Of course he 
could be held responsible if it was harmful, but FDA testing won't
protect 
him from tht anyway.

In other words, it's a non-existent issue. Basically Eli Lily and Co
didn't
go to the time or expense to run these second level tests, ad it matters
not at all.
