Default Spray Valium

After reading this forum for over three years, I am continually amazed by the gripes/complaints members relate about "other" people on cruises who are rude, inconsiderate, impatient, etc.

Wouldn't it be nice if along with your cruise docs, you receive a spray can of valium to use when necessary once a cruise begins?

I can already hear the hiss of spray cans going off as we wait in line for someone to discover that they haven't filled out their forms yet and are the couple stading in front of you in line. Or how about the old guy who HAS to be first in the ice cream line, or the woman who must sit in a particular chair for the evening entertainment.

If there was a way to get this product designed, I'd buy stock in the pharmaceutical company that could bring it to market and the first cruise line that handed it out while your luggage is being unloaded from bus as your cruise experience begins.

ColDoc:
The potential for overdose is too high for administering diazepam in this manner. However their is a product called Diastat that is administered at the other end. It would be good for the obnoxious traveler. That way when you tell them to "shove it", it would be for medicinal purposes. <VBG>

Take care,
Mike

I love this idea. If some in front of you is arguing with the security officer who is searching their bags for alcohol, you can just spray them and they will calm right down.

I have people argue with me all the time before the cruise. Somehow people get the idea they should be given a cruise for anytime at any price they want. I could imangine what happens when they go on a cruise.

How true! You should expect a certain amount of ease with a trip that you pay so much for. Although you should also keep in mind that these companies are dealing with thousands disembarking, thousands embarking, restocking foodstuffs, cleaning staterooms, and the list goes on and on. A certain amount of patience shouldn't be that difficult. After all, it's suppossed to be a vacation......relax and go with the flow. Yes you may run into a few bumps along the way, but ultimately, your vacation is what you make of it!

Personally, I would like to be the owner of the rehab hospital set up right buy the cruiseline that takes in and treats all of the addicted people after that cruise.

Actually it would take a large amount of diazepam for a person to overdose. benzodiazepines only cause around 6 deaths per million, and most of them are not from diazepam, but rather temazepam and flurazepam. Also deaths are usually associated with alcohol ingestion as well as taking the medication.

Sorry not trying to be a smarty pants, but this is one topic I know a little about.

and I agree with tamie, the rehab clinic would make a fortune

To be totally honest with everyone Haley, more deaths from Benzodiapams come from improper withdrawl care than from overdose or mixing with alcohol.

I bet you are right, I didn't get to that yet in pharmacy school. I will have to ask someone.

Once a professor told me he told someone who was being grumpy that they needed more fiber. The older man said "I get plenty of fiber buddy!" then he realized what he was saying and just got in his car. nice.

The risk of death has to do with the high risk of going into seizures from the withdrawl. That is why most patients are hospitalized for detox. If memory serves me the only withdrawl that is more dangerous is from alcohol.

Guys - lighten up - it's a joke!
Yep, the spray Valium is a grand idea. We could further use it on blackjack players who've never played, couples who choose to have embarrassing arguments at poolside, those who block every aisle and gangway by being clueless, smokers in non-smoking area, obnoxious, unsupervised children (may as well take out the parents too, if you can find them), those who come to the dining room as everyone else is ordering desert, and last but not least - the fools who just have to blow the life vest whistles during the muster drill!
