Abstract:

Taking a tour through the world of pharmaceuticals, this program reveals that drug advances have as much to do with serendipity as science-and that they frequently produce as many questions as solutions. Viewers learn about the shifting purposes behind some medicines-as in the case of Ritalin, which was designed to treat adult depression, and Viagra, the sexual benefits of which are actually a side effect. The film also asks why male contraceptives haven't caught on, looks at the consequences of over-prescribing antibiotics, and explores uncertainties surrounding Prozac and other SSRIs. Pill addiction is also a major topic.
