Generation Rx [electronic resource]: Resisting the Culture of Overmedication

At the 1991 FDA Prozac hearings, scores of impassioned victims described how the drug pushed them to the brink of suicide.

This film reawakens many of the arguments made against the culture of psychotropic prescription. Assembling a plethora of leaked memos, flawed studies, and previously unseen conference footage, the documentary points to a pattern of collusion between drug manufacturers and the regulatory watchdogs at the FDA.
