  1. Citing the Consumer Reports as done is at best misleading. The referenced study clearly shows that the percentage of people experiencing minimal, moderate, or marked worsening well exceeded the percentage experiencing minimal, moderate or marked improvement; 40% worse to 26% better at the 5 mg dose, and 31 to 24 at 10 mg.
