Dr Chris van Tulleken presents the first in a two-part social experiment aimed at finding out whether patients really need the repeat prescriptions they currently take. While many drugs undoubtedly do good, he is concerned about the possible side effects they can cause – and also believes many common illnesses are best treated without drugs. Taking over part of a GP surgery, Chris hears the stories of several patients, and instead of handing out their regular pills, he takes them away. In one case, a woman with chronic shoulder pain is unaware that some of her pills are now placebos, while his treatment of a depression-sufferer is more extreme – asking her to swim in a freezing cold lake.
