A very good idea on a subject that was time to do focus on, but the documentary (except the title) is poor and without a goal. Opinions and personal experiences are abstractly thrown here and there without a central spine of a story-line. At the end I didn't have a clear idea of what it was trying to say. It did not try to find the roots of the problem. It just wanted to mention the problem in a lazy way, like a puzzle that is not even solved yet. But that is not the only thing that did not work. While you watch it you start to realize how soft and politically correct it is. Not a single mention of any company, on profits, on the huge advertising industry from every aspect of the system (movies, video-clips, doctors, teachers, TV). Just stories without a political idea behind it. Without a cause. It had the smell of unfinished.

The Synopsis for Take Your Pills (2018) 720p
The pressure to achieve more, do more, and be more is part of being human - and in the age of Adderall and Ritalin, achieving that can be as close as the local pharmacy. No longer just "a cure for excitable kids," prescription stimulants are in college classrooms, on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley...any place "the need to succeed" slams into "not enough hours in the day." But there are costs. In the insightful Netflix documentary TAKE YOUR PILLS, award-winning documentarian Alison Klayman (Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry) focuses on the history, the facts, and the pervasiveness of cognitive-enhancement drugs in our amped-up era of late-stage-capitalism. Executive produced by Maria Shriver and Christina Schwarzenegger, TAKE YOUR PILLS examines what some view as a brave new world of limitless possibilities, and others see as a sped-up ride down a synaptic slippery slope, as these pills have become the defining drug of a generation.

Mediocre. Intresting subject but clumsy structure.Reviewed byvasilismavro79Vote: 2/10
This documentary was repetitive, lacked a clear message and misses the mark. It did a disservice to those who truly suffer from ADD/ADHD and to those who now are addicts from being improperly diagnosed and wrongly treated. I actually fell asleep.
Interesting, history of amphetamine and accelerating drug prescriptions in the US, all the competition because everyone try to enhance themselves. People and their stories, not sure wether they think the drugs were good or bad. Then this editing and lack of structure, movie jumps and bounces all over the place, half-second glimpses here, one second there, impossible to focus on anything. Now I feel like I just got ADHD and I need amphetamine to ever focus again. Please calm down, people.
