A fictitious drug introduced in a fake commercial skit that was done by the "Not Yet Ready for Primetime Players" in the early seasons of Saturday night Live (1970s).
This "drug" supposedly would just wash all those worries away with just one simple pill.
"oh, what a day! My car got a flat on the way to taking my son to school, and I was to go off to the IRS auditor's office afterward. Then I had to make funeral arrangements for my father, and my house burned down thanks to the neighborhood arsonist". "I could really use a Damitol right now. It relieves both stress, anxiety, and headaches. It's a wonder drug!"
a pill you take when you're upset or pissed off, and you just want that feeling to go away (i.e. "Damn it all!")
"I take Damitol when I'm stuck in the middle of a highway with a flat tire."
A fictitious pharmacological cocktail comprised of an NSAID such as Advil and an anti-anxiety drug like Valium designed to bring relief to people suffering from severe stress headaches. Available in an OTC form. Think the Rolling Stone's "Mother's Little Helper" by way of RoboCop's dystopian vision of consumerism gone awry.
Ad slogan : When life gets to be too much, just Damitol!
