Ailment: Flight or Fright
You've never been a fan of flying. When the flight attendant gives you the speech about how to pull on your oxygen mask to start the flow of oxygen and where to find your flotation device, you can't help but start to imagine the fiery scenarios in which you'd actually need them. Now your plane has taken off and the seatbelt light is back on. You've hit major turbulence and your heart is about to pop out of your chest. You've got to relax. The odds are in your favor. It's just a little bump in the air.
Drug name: Monother Hydratives
Active Ingredients: The lyrics "But it feels like forever / When you mind turns to fiction" and the sweeping strings and galloping rhythm.
Uses: To instill the logical fact that unless you see the wing on fire, you are probably hitting rough air and the danger is an illusion, while providing a steady rhythm for getting you through the bumps.
Directions: Play once at takeoff (with your phone in airplane mode) and repeat as necessary during turbulent rides.
