Nowadays everyone knows what a placebo means. For purpose of honesty and truth... Here's some new names for it.

Decepterol, Prevaricaine, Foolerol, Fakerin, Phonystatin, Wishfuline, Badvair,

Uncertainline, Gullebo, Tylenothis

(Slightly) off topic, but in UK we used to have a couple of doctors known as "The Amateur Transplants" who went around as a comedy duo putting medical words to songs and one of their songs was called, "Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin" superbly funny.

For information Paracetamol is Acetaminophen. Also some bad language.

I was going to suggest GoutOut but it's already available at WalMart. Packed with vitamins, fruit and veggie extracts for those too lazy to eat lunch.

OMG I love it.  Reminds me of the old snake oil expression:  "Cures coughs colds runny noses dirty arseholes and makes childbearing a pleasure".

Also reminds me of Monty Python's Medical Love Song.
