FILM SYNOPSIS: One in five Americans take psychiatric drugs daily, often for a lifetime. MEDICATING NORMAL follows five high-functioning people whose doctors prescribed pills to help with common problems- stress, insomnia, anxiety and grief- with devastating impact on their lives. The film relays critical information for patients and doctors about the potential risks of taking or prescribing psychiatric drugs.

FILM REVIEW:
"Medicating Normal dares to challenge prevailing myths about how psychotropic medications work, or fail to, in our ongoing struggle to treat mental illness. It promises to spark a long-overdue national conversation on the growing problem of overprescribing." -Anna Lembke, MD, Associate Professor, Stanford University Medical Center
