Actually I do not see any bad in taking pills that help you coping you with various situations just like exams that last about three to four hours. Things like that are really stressful and it is quite unhealthy to be stressed in such a high level amount. Of course I am definitely not talking about drug abuse or using hallucinogenic drugs, but I think to cope with stress it is absolutely okay to use pills for stress. I had a very heavy exam and I was so nervous and stressed out that I couldn't even concentrate for a single second. It really freaked me out. I called my mother and she came over two hours before the exam started and brought me some pills she uses for stress, called flexeril, and they really helped me out. I was quite skeptical in the beginning, but as I found an enlightening feeling inside my brain and my body I was able to concentrate on the most important matter of the day. My exam. So I guess situations like that are absolutely adequate for using pills for stress.
