If they can package nicotine as minty lozenges, why not psychotheraputic drugs?

Feeling blue? Date not going well? Just pop a refreshing Peppermint Paxil or X-Treme Mint Xanax and be on the road to minty mental wellness once again!

Ok, ok... I did it for the pun.

       SSRIs have to build up in your system to work. So you'd have to take these mints for several days to get anything but a placebo effect.

       Guy from the future 1: "So why did all those millions of teenagers die back in 2005?"   

       Guy from the future 3: "I don't know, but where'd guy from the future 2 go?"   

       Guy form the future 1: "I don't know, last I saw he was chewing down a mint xanax. Chasing it with red bull."

       [krelnik] But in the meantime, you'll have minty fresh breath! Besides, we all need a little placebo effect in our lives.

       Hey, personally I'd be happier if my psychotherapeutic drugs tasted of mint.
Basepair, May 16 2005

       I was going to say exactely what krelnik said. And placebo's dont work for people who know it won't work. Also, making drugs that can be habit forming tasty is a bad idea. you get fishbone!

       Do you need prescriptions for chocholate and coffee? silly semantics.
SpocksEyebrow, May 17 2005

       [SpocksEyebrow] Is it a minty fishbone?
justaguy, May 17 2005

       Why the mint Xanax? It works pretty quickly if you just swallow it. And you're going to need a prescription for it anyway, at least in the U.S. I like the general idea though, nothing beats a pocketful of Xanax.

       Why mint toothpicks? Regular ones work just as well.
