For therapy in patients with hypochondriacs, in addition to the therapy already described, can placebo be given those patients? Thank #psikiatri #preklinr

I feel like in terms of ethics for a regular illness, this is discouraged because it's important to maintain trust. But hmmm, what to do for a psych patient? This is tough, because that would be a good "treatment" and diagnosis option, but a patient with illness anxiety disorder (previously called hypochondriac) should be given similar respect as another patient. I don't have the answer . . .
