Acetaminophen as effective as PLACEBO ?

Acetaminophen Painkillers Like Paracetamol May Be Ineffective Study Finds

From article:

Acetaminophen painkillers such as Paracetamol may be ineffective when it comes to healing back pain was the finding of a recent study. The pain relieving drug found in products such as Tylenol and Paracetamol, has been found not to live up to the claims that it actually reduces the amount of pain that a person feels. According to the first big trial presented by Australian researchers, there was no difference found between acetaminophen and the placebo drug.

Low-back pain is one of the leading causes of discomfort and disability for people worldwide. Usually, doctors recommend that sufferers take painkillers such as Paracetamol or Tylenol. Other remedies include exercises and stretching, hot or cold packs to reduce inflammation, and physical therapy.

At least a PLACEBO… won’t screw up your liver !

  1. Pain? Not really, seemed better for fever

  2. May not work for back pain, but it works wonders for tension headaches from my experience. Either that or I am extremely susceptible to the placebo theory:)
