Medicating Normal

Medicating Normal

Millions of people worldwide are physically dependent on commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs. While these can provide effective short-term relief, they have dangerous side effects, are addictive in nature and cause long-term harm.

Combining cinema verité and investigative journalism, 'Medicating Normal' follows the stories of people whose lives have been torn apart by the very medications they believed would help them. Expert testimony reveals a systemically corrupt industry.

'Medicating Normal' is the untold story of the disastrous consequences that can occur when profit-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
