Me thinks it just stops you where you are at and doesn't work quite like the fountain of youth. The repercussions could be huge with a pill like that.

Who gets it? Who can afford it?
What do we do with all these people living waaay longer?

Not sure this is gonna be a "good" thing overall.

pandoras box for sure....... it would cost insurance more in the long run so would possibly be treated as cosmetic and not covered as normal medications.. so that leaves it to being only available to the super rich. black market would be a serious problem....possibly be the worst drug problem ever created..........and then as you alluded to, population would have to be maintained very closely..... this is starting to look more scary dystopian than it should....lol

It doesn’t sound like a cure all but maybe a way to eliminate some nasty age related diseases like dementia and Parkinson’s. If it can make the time we have here healthier it sounds like a good thing.
