Pharmacists cure kids' nightmares with monster spray

If your little ones are afraid of the dark when they go to bed, tell them to have no fear, a monster spray is here.

Barrett Pharmacy in Watford City, N.D. prescribed a special monster spray to a 6-year-old girl who was having trouble sleeping. Josslyn Dodds, the pharmacy's manager, told the Daily News Tuesday, the girl was afraid of monsters and afraid to sleep.

The family was friends with one of the employees, so the staff whipped up a batch of their homemade monster spray. Dodds says they have made the spray for a few special children in recent years.

The spray also came with its own prescription instructions. The bottle reads, "Spray around the room at night before bed, repeat if necessary." The small bottle includes 120 sprays and the prescription allows for one refill.

Dodds won't reveal what is in his magic potion.

After a few sprays the girl came to the pharmacy to thank everyone and tell everyone that she is sleeping much better. A picture of the bottle made its way onto social media and the pharmacy has gotten a lot of encouragement from parents nationwide.
