Last year, doctors in the UK handed over a billion prescriptions, a 50 percent rise in the last 10 years. Dr Chris van Tulleken knows drugs save lives, but he believes Britain's prescription drug binge is dangerous. To find solutions, he takes over part of a busy GP surgery in East London to try and take patients off their pills and treat them in other ways. His first patient is Wendy, who has been taking pain killers for the last 20 years to deal with chronic pain in her shoulder. Chris is determined to prove to her that drugs don't work, but she'll need a lot of convincing. He devises an experiment - two weeks' worth of medication with a twist: some of the pills are placebos, and some are the real thing, but she doesn't know which is which.
