    What the FDA has essentially done is prevent a lot more people from taking control of their own health. While statins do require a blood workup it can easily be acomplished and the patient could work with the pharmacist to ensure that he or she is getting the necessary blood tests or even provide the service at a charge. So now we have to make an appointment at the doctor, wait a week or two, go to the doctor which can take an hour or two and then go to the pharmacy to have an Rx filled. Time is the new currency and people just don't have this luxury anmore so the FDA is saying "we don't trust patients to do the right thing and therefore want to protect them from themselves.
