Endorsement: Renowned Stanford University psychiatrist Dr. Anna Lembke praised the film saying: “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.”
