How do I know if my meds are real or a placebo?!

Question: How do I know if my meds are real or a placebo.?
If you had it filled at a pharmacy, the medication is real. Placebo also means prescribing a medication that will not have a therapeutic effect on the disease/ailment.....pain pills, vitamins and antibiotics are considered placebos also because they are not considered to treat the underlying cause of the ailment.

Pain pills will not help heal an injury, just make it less painful

Vitamins may not necessarily correct an ailment

Antibiotics are not effective against viruses.

Research your problem and common treatments for it.See if your medication is a mainstream treatment, if not ask your Dr what is the benefit of the medication you are takingHealth Question & Answer
