Acetaminophen and Depression: Girl, You Have no Faith in Medicine

Well, as the immortal Jack White once sang, "Don't even need a drink of water to make the headache go away."(SEE also:The White Stripes – Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine – Video & free listeni  * Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine by The White Stripes) and It turns out that the scientific community is learning that my traditional breakfast of Diet Dr. Pepper and excedrin is not such a bad idea after all. "A provocative new research study investigates the possibility that over-the-counter pain relief drugs may be helpful for treatment of depression and anxiety." (SEE Acetaminophen For Mental Health Relief | Psych Central News

The article goes on to report: “The idea that a drug designed to alleviate physical pain should reduce the pain of social rejection seemed simple and straightforward based on what we know about neural overlap between social and physical pain systems. To my surprise, I couldn’t find anyone who had ever tested this idea,” DeWall said.  Well, they've tested it now my friends...  but it is not all good news...Acetaminophen can cause stomach bleeding and other issues if you exceed recommended dosages...as the article states: "Long-term use of acetaminophen has also been linked to serious liver damage, so it is important for patients to follow all package directions and consult their physicians if they are contemplating taking any medication for an off-label use."

But the good news, is that acetaminophen may be more useful than just the subject of a really cool song by the White Stripes,,,and aspirin is not too shabby either.

Anywho here are the Nifty Song Lyrics of the day:

Girl you have no faith in medicine (The White Stripes)


Oh girl you have no faith in medicine

Acetaminophen you see the medicine oh girl



Is there a way to find the cure for this implanted in a pill

It's just the name upon the bottle, which determines if it will

Is the problem you're allergic to a well familiar name?

Do you have a problem with this one if the results are the same?



Acetaminophen you see the medicine

Oh girl you have no faith in medicine x2

Acetaminophen you see the medicine oh girl

[Bridge]



But girl you have no faith in medicine

Acetaminophen you see the medicine oh girl



Well strip the bark right off a tree and just hand it this way

Don't even need a drink of water to make the headache go away

Give me a sugar pill and watch me just rattle down the street



Acetaminophen you see the medicine

Oh girl you have no faith in medicine x2

Oh girl x4
