When I first learned that aspirin was good for other health needs than pain, I was astounded. It's obvious to older people who've used it for years, but I had only known it as a headache medicine. Now marketers may be selling Tylenol under a new purpose: easing actual heartache. Research indicates that it may actually help relieve pain of an emotional nature.
This is not really incredible news, especially considering how many people escape into drugs to relieve emotional pain every single day, but it's one of those obvious things that we're all surprised to learn. I wouldn't be surprised to see people start taking Tylenol following a breakup now that it's been published, either.
