In the final third of the film, which is typically when documentaries reveal their true agenda with alternative solutions or concepts or products, Klayman promotes, through inclusion, the new fad of LSD microdosing, as if the whole issue to begin with is about the drug of choice rather than the dosage. As if there wasn't some slight admission throughout that prescription amphetamines are minimally dosed and have, historically, seen problems with increased and concentrated use. As if there aren't side effects with any drug. As if you can't also take too much acid.
One of the most maddening statements in all of Take Your Pills, though, comes at the end. It's another frustrating comment from the young artist, who says that people should just teach kids to focus, which sounds really logical and easy but isn't practical or affordable for most families. Believe me, if behavior therapy was a feasible option for my son and not costly in its time and commitment as much as in its literal expense, I'd prefer it to medication. But it's true, kids with ADD and ADHD should probably go through some multimodal process to potentially limit or eliminate the need for drug treatment down the road. He may not have had that luxury.
