Acetaminophen could reduce emotions

According to a new study, there is a possibility that acetaminophen could have an impact on emotions. Researchers said that acetaminophen might dampen emotions. As per the researchers, acetaminophen is the main ingredient in the over-the-counter pain reliever Tylenol. In the US, it has been used for over 70 years and also is the most common drug ingredient. It is found in over 600 medicines in the United States.

Every week, about 23% adults of America use a medicine that contains acetaminophen. According to the researchers, the participants who made use of acetaminophen reported less strong emotions at the time they saw both very pleasant and very disturbing photos as compared to those who took placebos.
