Millions of people worldwide are physically dependent on, not heroin or cocaine, but commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs. While these drugs can provide effective short-term relief, pharmaceutical companies have hidden—from both doctors and patients—their dangerous side effects and long-term harm. Medicating Normal follows the journeys of a newly married couple, a female combat veteran, a waitress, and a teenager – who were damaged by the very medications they believed would help them. It is the untold story of what can occur when profit-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
