The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

The Placebo Effect

One of the downsides to having PD is that PD’rs are 30% more susceptible to the “Placebo Effect.” We respond to fake drugs and therapies like they actually work! It can even apply to therapies such as DBS and other treatments. We THINK we’re getting better but it’s all in our minds! Tricky, ain’t it?
