How does Tylenol work? The truth is, we don’t know…

Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol™, is one of the most popular pain relievers in the world, selling more than 27 billion doses in 2009 alone. It can reduce fevers, eliminate aches and pains and relieve cough and cold symptoms. But how does it work? The truth is, no one knows exactly. This week, Reactions examines the theories about the popular pill.

Something to look forward to. And yet with work hour restrictions in effect, we’ve still had it better than our predecessors. It’s still by no means easy, though.

No lies or exaggerations, but I found preclinical years to be miserable. It just constantly felt like an academic beat down. Any excitement and enthusiasm I had was stomped out of me with the endless parade of flaming hoops to jump through. So far third year has been so completely different. Don’t…

Word. This is hard, but I love it. Not a thought that I had much over the past two years! Really only on Wednesdays (my clinic day both years).

Third year rules.

Agreed. I have learned more in the past 6.5 weeks than I did in the first two years. Or so it seems. More than likely, it’s putting the clinical reasoning to the bedrock of scientific knowledge. And interacting with other human beings.
