Nicole Lamberson from the film Medicating Normal interviews Jim Gottstein author of They Zyprexa Papers. Medicating Normal follows five high-functioning people, including two military veterans, whose doctors prescribed pills to help with common problems such as stress, insomnia, anxiety, trauma and grief. The arguments extolling the benefits of these drugs are often the only ones presented to the public. Medicating Normal tells another story, one rarely reported. It is a story of harm done.

Hahn, a freelance writer and independent scholar with a long-standing interest in iatrogenic harm and the medicalization of everyday life.

“Obedience Pills recounts the shocking story of psychiatry’s abandonment of scientific evidence in favor of professional power and profit. As expertly discussed here by Patrick Hahn, the bizarre transition from some musings on youth morality in the nineteenth century to the current drugging of millions of kids with highly dangerous substances for a non-existent condition would be almost laughable if it wasn’t so utterly tragic and devastating for so many young people and their families. A must-read for anyone currently living with or considering a diagnosis of ‘ADHD’.”
