It does not require a $1,000,000 study to figure this out. People want a pill for everything that ails them and doctors prescribe too many medications. Another medication is given to counter the side-effects of the first. And then another to counter the side-effects of the second.

My mother was taking 4 different meds for problems w/ high blood pressure. She was getting very sick from them. She has weaned herself off them through diet and relaxation exercise and is doing much better.
