> "Studies" like this really upset me.

Me, too, especially when people make treatment decisions based upon them. There is actually an ongoing project to discover under what circumstances it makes sense to make a drug combination the first-line treatment.

The following study was conducted by some very well respected names in the field. They may not have chosen drug combinations that are more globally effective. Perhaps their choice of subjects unintentionally excluded cases that would ultimately demonatrate treatment resistance.

I must discount this study simply because my observations in real life demonstrates the superiority of combination treatments anecdotally. This is not a scientific approach, I know. However, I cannot discount what my own eyes tell me. I feel that administering a combination of medications as a first line treatment has not been studied often enough to rely on the results of one study.
