RCT's may NOT work for your type of question (especially if there are ethical implications) or it may not work for the amount of articles on your topic. If you decide to use an RCT, you can use the search hedge found here (from Cochrane):
("randomized controlled trial"[pt] OR "controlled clinical trial"[pt] OR randomized[tiab] OR placebo[tiab] OR "drug therapy"[sh] OR randomly[tiab] OR trial[tiab] OR groups[tiab])
('randomized controlled trial'/exp OR 'controlled clinical trial'/exp OR randomized:ti,ab OR placebo:ti,ab OR 'drug therapy':lnk OR randomly:ti,ab OR trial:ti,ab OR groups:ti,ab)
(PT Randomized Controlled Trial OR TI(randomized OR placebo OR “drug therapy” or random OR trial OR groups) OR AB(randomized OR placebo OR “drug therapy” or random OR trial OR groups))
