'Is your over-the-counter pain reliever turning you into a zombie? New research has shown that might just be the case. While you may not have a hankering for brains that you can’t explain, it turns out acetaminophen (the active ingredient in drugs like Tylenol) can turn off more than just your pain — it can dull your emotions and reduce your ability to feel empathy for others.
While it may be available over the counter (OTC), it appears that acetaminophen is actually a mind-altering drug.
If you take the drug regularly, the zombifying effects of acetaminophen can potentially lead to problems with interpersonal relationships, both at work and in your social life. There are many other dangers associated with OTC pain relievers, and this new finding confirms that more natural, less harmful methods of pain relief should be encouraged by the medical community — even if it means less profit for Big Pharma.
The pharmaceutical industry has proven time and time again that they are either too incompetent or unwilling to investigate their products thoroughly — as evidenced by the fact that many drugs (including ones available over the counter) are on the market for decades before adverse effects are ever attributed to them.
A growing body of research is showing that acetaminophen is actually capable of mind-altering effects. Researchers from Ohio State University recently conducted a study to examine acetaminophen’s effect on the emotional state. The findings were published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience in 2016.''
