A glass pill, the same size as a typical 6-8 hour Benadryl, filled with sugar, and with a stainless steel cap on one end. The cap has a hoop on the outside, to which is attached a smooth stainless steel chain, 2 feet long.
This can be kept in a small pocketable plastic box and regularly sanitized.
pills having been proven scientifically to reduce symptoms of a vast majority of human ills, the repeater placebo could be used on any occasion.
Have flu-like symptoms? Pop your repeater placebo in your mouth and swallow! Pull it back out and swallow again for prescription strength placebo!
The same goes for anything from colds to cancer to neurotic excoriations -- provided you don't develop an itch in your throat.
The high quality build of the repeater placebo pill will allow unlimited usage, and the money saved from expense on conventional drugs will quickly pay for the repeater placebo which realistically could retail for $15.
