TAKE YOUR PILLS


THE FILM
Alternately characterized as an epidemic or a love affair, prescription stimulants like Adderall, Vyvanse and Ritalin have become a $13 billion industry in America. These drugs increase dopamine and adrenaline levels, promising a dose of performance enhancement for our hyper-competitive age. TAKE YOUR PILLS applies a personal lens to the rise of Adderall and drugs like it, and places individual experiences within a larger socio-economic and historical framework. By incorporating various animation styles, graphics and archival, the film raises vital questions about our society today and where we are headed
