Medicating Normal

Showings

O Cinema South Beach Sun, Oct 23 12:00 PM

Description

MEDICATING NORMAL follows the stories of five subjects harmed by prescribed medications they believed would help them. It is the untold story of what happens when profit-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.

 

One in five Americans takes one or more commonly prescribed psychiatric medications on a daily basis. While these drugs can sometimes provide effective relief, they are prescribed far too often, frequently without discussing with patients the possible alternatives and potential adverse outcomes, both physical and mental. MEDICATING NORMAL follows five people who are harmed by the very medications they believed would help them. It is the untold story of the serious consequences that can occur when market-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
