"Meds" is a song by English alternative rock band Placebo. It was the fourth single to be released from the group's 2006 studio album Meds. It came out on 9 October 2006 in both vinyl and CD format. The song features vocals from Alison "VV" Mosshart of The Kills.

The song was released to alternative rock radio airplay in the U.S. in late 2006. Its airplay increased gradually, so that by early January 2007, it was one of the 50 most-played songs on U.S. alternative radio.[citation needed]

The song reached No. 35 on the UK singles chart.[1]

The cover art features a collage of the band members blurred faces. All three faces were featured individually on the previous three singles released for the album.
