At least he leaves no side effects.
I think I’ve been taking a placebo all these years!!! But I love the crunchy center!!
Placebos are like voodoo… they only work if you believe they will work.
Her pet name for him is Sugar
He does have that effect on people.
The litany of side effects began to take over my life.
Finally I stopped placebos.
Thanks Hazelden Betty Ford!
i’ll speculate that he probably has more fun than sedatives…
Placebo, the Mike Pence of meds.
I guess they interiorize the wine by sopping it up? Getting dunked?
Babe, I’m a placebo. I’ll do whatever you want me to do.

Is the placebo sweet (sugar pill)?
The one on the left leaves a bitter taste in the mouth!
Where do you get the PLACEBOS?
Bulbous bouffant macadamia placEbo! ;-)
Should I call you SUGAR, pill?
“I’ve been taking this new drug and I’m high as a kite. It’s called placebo!”
My physician friend told me that when he served in the navy they would sometimes prescribe “obecalp” to sailors that were acting ill in order to get out of some nasty duty. Obecalp = “placebo” backwards.
He could claim to relieve the suffering from hypochondria.
Placebos help sort out the ineffectual. I would that we had these in the halls of government.

he helps to establish de efficacy of other drugs by setting a comparison group, plus they don’t do just nothing

The Covid19 vaccine?
Contrary to popular belief, placebos don’t actually provide medical improvement. That idea comes from patients who perceive their own symptoms as improved, simply because they expect improvement. But when symptoms are actually measured, there is no change.
(For example, an insomniac who takes a placebo instead of a sleep drug may say that they fell asleep faster and stayed asleep longer. But when measured, they’re taking just as long to fall asleep, and waking up just as often during the night. Always be wary of self-reported effects.)
Maybe she’s looking for a sugar daddy.
I thought you shouldn’t mix alcohol with meds.
“They also serve who only stand and wait.” —John Milton

Well, you take enough of them and you may get Type-2 diabetes.
I take offense. I have severe hypochondria, and I have to take a placebo every day for the REST OF MY LIFE.
The Russians are racing to develop a harmless placebo vaccine, so they can “win” the vaccine race and convince their people to go back to work until the “real” vaccine arrives. We have something similar going on.
Au contraire, my medicinal pal! The placebo effect is demonstrable and significant.
But at least placebos are sweet.
