CBS Sunday Morning - Placebo Effect

Recommended Posts

Jeffrey Roberts

Catching up on TV today I ran into an old research study that was presented in 2010 about the Placebo Effect and IBS. This was on CBS Sunday morning as their feature story on October 9.

While I was disappointed that some viewers might get the wrong idea about IBS that it can be simply managed by fooling a patient into believing that a placebo medicine might work like an evidenced based one, I'm curious to know of anyone who might have been involved in this study.

It's been widely stated for many years that IBS Patients have a higher than usual placebo response, yet there has never been any research that I am aware of, to explain why this is the case.

Hi Jeff

i've seen those articles before and  i thought  that this  might give people who did not have ibs the wrong idea about it--that it can simply be managed by a placebo med..

i recently read the following article which is similar.  it also mentions migraines.  i have frequent migraines and no way do i think a placebo would work for me.  just IMHO based on my experience .:$    i've tried homeopathic meds that were supposed to work for migraines which didn't help me..  (if i'm not making sense right now, it's because i have a migraine lol)

this looks like it's about that study maybe or a similar one:

anyway--thanks for posting this.  it's interesting to know that  this idea is still out there...
