Chato’s NEW cartoon series: Over-Medicated!

Started in 2011: this new cartoon series opens the doors of medicine cabinets world-wide! For the first time, the antics of the medicine bottles are revealed. 

No more can they hide behind medicine cabinet doors because Chato Stewart, (hey, that’s me) exposes the truth behind the bottles. You have seen these bottle cartoons before as mental health humor cartoons, but now they have their very own series!

The above-cartoon is was the “bonus cartoon” in January for reading my NEW monthly newsletter. (You can join below)  No one else HAD the honorable privilege of seeing this unpublished cartoon UNTIL TODAY. It was just for them… Now it’s for everyone!

While I will be showing the cartoons on my Mental Health Humor blog at Psych Central, the cartoon series will have its own website in time. I’m still working on that at, however, it will be a while before I have it up. (not even close to starting a website… feel free to volunteer to build a free site for me at any time)

I hope you really enjoy some of the new cartoons in the series, since they really reflect our medicated lives… Or, at least, it reflects my medicated life living with bipolar disorder!

Here are some of my past Over-Medicated cartoons:

Hey! Are You Over Medicated? (NEW Cartoon) This cartoon was the feature cartoon for the series and how I came up with the name.

Are you Taking to many meds? Cartoon by Chato Stewart
