Let me set it up...

Whether you read that or not, I'd say that "Batman takes drugs" is a gross simplification, and the first issue goes to lengths to spell out the conflict.

But again, I should wait to hear from someone who read more than one issue...
I didn't doubt that the story would justify his decision through some such incident - but the scene you describe after he first takes the pills is exactly what I'm talking about. It all sounds like a way to do a variation on "what if Batman was out of control?" I've never read one of those that was particularly good.
