* Justified in ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust''. The only reason Rei was taking "a giant cocktail of sedatives, dissociatives, mood suppressors, and hormonal contraceptives" was because it made it easier for Gendo to control her, and Asuka pretty much begs her to stop taking it when she finds out (Asuka had previously been put on it by her step-mother for similar reasons). Rei ends up going through several months of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzodiazepine_withdrawal_syndrome nasty withdrawal symptoms]], but slowly starts experiencing emotions as she detoxes. She also had the good sense to research the proper speed to ween herself off and obtained a counter agent to reduce the nastier side effects.

* Beautifully inverted in ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird''. When Mrs. Dubose, an elderly neighbor, calls Atticus a "nigger-lover," Jem destroys some of her flowers as a result, and as punishment, Atticus makes the boy read aloud to her every day for a month. After the punishment ends and Mrs. Dubose passes away, Atticus reveals that not only was Mrs. Dubose dying of a terminal illness, but she had become addicted to morphine to relieve the pain. She was so determined to [[DyingAsYourself die as herself]] that she stopped taking the medicine; the horrible withdrawal symptoms were only eased by Jem reading to and distracting her. Atticus says that to deny the morphine and die painfully, but clear of mind, is the bravest thing he has ever known.


Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' saw Rudy spending afternoons with an elderly neighbor who didn't like to take the various medicines her doctor had prescribed. Rudy tells Cliff about it, and he rallies Vanessa, Theo, and Rudy herself to put on a short, comic play about the effects of not taking proper medications. The neighbor eventually relents and agrees to start following her doctor's orders.

* In ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', Dr. Erik Selvig is seen with a big bag of meds after having "had a god in [his] brain" from ''Film/TheAvengers'', due to thinking himself [[CloudCuckoolander crazy]] (admittedly, he's not the only one). Upon seeing a flock of birds [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight fly in an S-pattern, disappear at the start of the S-pattern, then]] ''[[TheCuckoolanderWasRight reappear flying out of the sidewalk under his, Darcy, and Ian's feet]]'', he quickly decides "There's nothing more reassuring than to know that [[WorldGoneMad the world is even crazier than you are]]" and dumps the meds in the nearest trash can.
