What is Dylar in White Noise? Is Dylar a Real Drug?

The Netflix drama film “White Noise” is based on Don DeLillo’s book of the same name. It’s about a couple named Jack and Babette Gladney, whose lives are in danger when an “airborne toxic event” scares the town of Blacksmith. While Jack does everything he can to save the lives of his wife and children, he finds out that Babette has been taking a pill called Dylar without telling him.

Babette tells him that it’s just a cherry-flavored Life Savers candy when he asks her about it. With the help of his stepdaughter Denise, Jack is curious and determined to figure out what’s going on. So, what does Dylar mean? Is it for real? How do we know? SPOILERS AHEAD.

Denise warns Jack that Babette might be taking a secret pill, but Jack doesn’t listen to his stepdaughter. But when he finds a bottle of Dylar that Babette had hidden, he is sure that she is telling the truth. Since he couldn’t find the pill in any of the pharmacies he went to, he asks his colleague to do some tests to find out what it is.

When she gets stuck, Jack goes to Babette’s doctor for help. Babette’s doctor tells him that he hasn’t given her that kind of drug. Still, Jack is able to figure out what the pill is for in the end. Dylar is a drug that was made to help people who are afraid of dying.

Babette got the pills when they were still being made, and Mr Grey, who came up with them, stopped working on them when he couldn’t prove that they worked to treat thanatophobia. Babette’s fear of dying has been going on for a long time.

Babette was different from most people because she was afraid of what death would be like in real life, even when most people were getting close to death in a TV show. So, she tried to find comfort in Dylar, which was made by Mr. Grey because he wanted humans to be able to face death without being afraid of it. But Mr Grey and his Dylar not only failed to get rid of the fear of death, but they also made it worse.

Just saying “falling plane” made Babette and Grey, who had been taking Dylar for months, want to hide from an imaginary plane. So, Babette is a victim of a trick that Mr. Grey came up with using a drug that has no scientific basis. He kept giving Babette Dylar in exchange for s*x, and she kept taking it even though it made her worry about dying even more.

Is Dylar a Real Drug in White Noise?

Dylar is not a real drug, though. Don DeLillo, who wrote the book that the film is based on and is named after, came up with the idea for the drug. Even though fear of death, also known as thanatophobia, is a real fear, there isn’t a specific drug that treats it. Instead, it seems that psychiatrists treat anxiety with drugs like benzodiazepines.

Benzodiazepines are a type of drug that psychiatrists all over the world approve of and prescribe. Dylar, on the other hand, is a made-up pill that was made to help Babette get over her fear of death. Even though Dylar doesn’t exist in real life, Babette’s discovery that Mr. Grey made it as part of a secret clinical trial sheds light on the many illegal clinical trials that are going on around the world.

Several people who took part in these trials have lost their lives or been hurt for good because of them. Babette can be seen as a stand-in for the real-life people who were hurt by these illegal and unethical clinical trials.
