Medicating Normal

The Medicating Normal documentary viewing did not disappoint. Highly recommend for anyone (adults AND children) taking any kind of psych drug... whether it's to treat ADHD, anxiety, depression or even just to sleep. They get into the clinical trials, the marketing and the incentives from pharma. They get into the side effects that typically result in more meds with more side effects. And ultimately how many of these can be treated through root cause-based protocols, coping and behavioral therapies. They get into the long-term results vs the short term benefits. It's not pretty.

So many psychiatrists have moved away from script-based treatments for mental illness based on the belief that the long-term damage outweighs any short-term benefit. You can rent the doc on Amazon - it's worth the watch if you or a loved one are struggling.
