Revue De Médecine Psychosomatique. III, 1961: Psychopharmacology and Psychotherapy in Psychosomatic Medicine. R. Held. No. 3, pp. 29-35.

The author points out the difficulty in distinguishing between the actual pharmacological effect of a drug and its suggestive effect. The transference atmosphere in which the drug is prescribed is of particular importance in the psychosomatic patient. If the drug is received as a 'good object', its effect will be enhanced by the positive affective charge it conveys; if it is identified with a 'bad object', it may cause paradoxical results.
