I work in clinical trials. Lots of them. In my experience placebos lead to all manner of AEs and SAEs. The only thing worse is the active treatment.
The best "treatment" I have seen of the placebo effect is the following "article"
Shame on you, claiming your product had no side effects…
If you buy it for twice the price, it will cure you twice as fast!
umvue, I don't know what an AE or an SAE is, but I guarantee that our top-quality placebos will, in a blind study, generate them at no higher rate than an inactive substance!
Christopher, that's great!
Mark, that's interesting!
Pierre-Hugues, that is both great _and_ interesting!
I am in an emphatic mood today! Go Giants!
This ad makes untrue claims!
Placebos DO have side effects.
"but I guarantee that our top-quality placebos will, in a blind study, generate them at no higher rate than an inactive substance!"
I'm not so sure about your guarantee in an individual trial.
Placebo doesn't cause side-effects? It caused me severe iritation, depression and anger! I mean, have you even listened to 'Without You I'm Nothing'?
God I hope I am being trolled.
Just in case, you don't actually know what a placebo is, it's a medicine that doesn't actually do anything. They're usually made of sugar.
If You get Side effects from sugar, you should probably go get tested for diabetes.
