One in five Americans are physically dependent on, not heroin or cocaine, but commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs. Combining cinema verite and investigative journalism, MEDICATING NORMAL follows the stories of five ordinary people whose doctors prescribed psychiatric drugs to help with familiar problems such as stress, mild depression, sleeplessness, grief, etc. This is the untold story of the very serious consequences that can occur when profit-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
