The Doctor Who Scored Methadone for Anna Nicole

2/14/2007 7:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was by Anna Nicole's side when she participated in West Hollywood's Gay Pride Parade back in 2005. He also prescribed methadone when Smith was eight months pregnant.

TMZ obtained documents which show that on August 25, 2006, just 13 days before Smith gave birth, Dr. Kapoor wrote a prescription for methadone. The prescription, RX#2846735, was written for Michelle Chase. TMZ has learned that Michelle Chase was an alias Anna Nicole used. Under California law, it's illegal to prescribe a controlled substance to a false name.

That same day, Key Pharmacy in the San Fernando Valley filled the prescription and sent it to "Vicky Marshall" (sic) in the Bahamas. Vickie Marshall is Anna Nicole's legal name.

TMZ contacted Dr. Kapoor, a 1996 graduate of Boston University School of Medicine, who said, "No comment."

TMZ also contacted Key Pharmacy. The owner said patient privacy laws prevent him from commenting.

Why don't they just let her rest in piece already. They are dragging this thru the mud .In the mean time there is a baby with out a mother ,who need to be put to rest. And her mother who knows Anna wanted nothing to with her needs to back off.All of a sudden the hillybilly's come out of the wood work! No it's not for the baby as they say its for the money. Plz its Anna's wish NOT to have her mother or any member of her family have the baby as Anna her self said it on Larry King .And plz already with the HKS killed her and her son thats crap. If anyone ever watched her TV show on they would know Anna took No crap from him.She even made the poor guy look like a fool at times. If it were drugs that took her young life then thats on her she knew what she was doing she was a adult.So they all need to wait for the DR'S to say what took her life until then stop with the stories.and PUT HER TO REST PLZZZZ.

""""306. Anyone heard of innocent until proven guilty??? Some people here obviously have not. I don't think a physician would ever prescribe methodone or any presc. drugs to anyone unless they need it --- especially to a pregnant woman or a celebrity. There is too much to lose. If he did do it then he will pay for his crime.

Tell that to the doctors that gave drugs to... oh I dunno, about every other Hollywood celeb who OD'ed on 'legal' drugs.

Please don't be naive and think just because a doctor has a scrip license, that he's an angel, and completely moral.

He couldn't have even SEEN Anna, much less given scrips to her. She was too far along in her pregnancy to travel.

Why didn't Anna Nicole just get any prescriptions she needed from the doctors attending to her in the Bahamas? She had a C-section. The OB doctor probably told her in advance she would need it. Sure she would have pain after but the OB doctor as the attending doctor could surely prescribe whatever she needed at discharge. Why did a CA doctor have to prescribe Methadone in advance? Hopefully she refrained from taking drugs when she was pregnant. Of course there was the unexpected death of her son in the hospital. and Methadone was involved. Probably the same Methadone that was shipped from CA. Some reports are that there will be a coroner's inquest and someone will testiy that Howard K. Stern gave Daniel something in the hospital. Why were all these drugs being brought into the hospital. When you're in the hospital in the U.S. you can't just bring any of your own meds to take while you're in the hospital except if you get approval from the attending doctor. Those meds have to be kept at the Nurse's station usually and dispensed by the Nurses. The doctor in CA should not have been prescribing something to someone he wasn't seeing in person without notifying the attending doctor. Especially if he doesn't have a background in OB. Further the pharmacist filling the prescription had no knowledge of other medications she may have been prescribed by and attending in the Bahamas. Does the pharmacy even have the proper license to ship a controlled substance out of the country? Did they file the proper paperwork notifying the government of shipping the controlled substance out of the country? Further I have to wonder about the nurse attending to Anna Nicole in Florida. If Anna Nicole had a fever of 105 degrees she should have been in the hospital. They say they put her in an ice bath to bring down the fever. How many buckets of ice was that? Was she sitting in a bath of ice water? Not good. Hospitals have better methods such as a mattress that can be controlled for a certain temperatures to cool someone. Also, she probably should have been on IVs. . For all the money she had she certainly didn't have very good medical attention. The bodyguard was the nurse's husband and per an internview on ET he got a call from her regarding Anna's condition and asked him to call 911, she couldn't get to the phone. How was she calling him then if she couldn't get to the phone. . He called the hotel to call 911. A policewoman called 911. Why go through all the channels and waste time? Did they need Howard K Stern's approval because of possible bad publicity?The bodyguard ran a redlight getting there as quick as he could. He called Howard K. Stern to come to the hotel after hanging up with his wife the nurse. It sounds like it wouldn't have made a difference how quickly the paramedics got there because he said her eyes were fixed and dilated when he got to her. His wife was doing CPR and he assisted. He is an EMT and had seen many situations like this. I just hope if Dannielyn gets a fever of 105 degress a light will go on that she should go to the hospital. Babies can dehydrate quickly when sick. etc Just don't let the nurse who was attending to Anna Nicole make the decisions that she can handle everything with Dannielyn. She couldn't handle Anna Nicole who could speak for herself. Just think with a baby that can't tell you anything. It is all in the observation and examination. Taking vital signs. Was she monitoring Anna Nicole's vital signs outside of her temperature? If not then why was she left to attend to her? They should have hired someone who was more qualified if Anna Nicole insisted she didn't want to be hospitalized. Private duty nurses should be able to pick up on changes in condition such as respirations lessening. They only have one patient to concentrate on whereas nurses in a hospital are assigned several patients at a time. How sad with all the money Anna Nicole had she got such poor medical care. The rich don't always utilize their money wisely when it comes to medical care apparently because they are worried about things being reported.

Anna led an extremely sinful life. The results are coming out bit by bit but the main thing is that she died at a young age, which is what is Bible says will happen if you totally disregard God and live your life the way you want to. Wise up Brittany......if you don't straighten up......this will happen to you!! This is a warning for everyone in the world to wake up and live right............and being a drugged out person isn't the way to go!!

I wouldnt be surprised if HKS is also using methadone, I think he allowed Daniel to use it while his mother was in the hospital giving birth to DannieLynn, If you have never used heroin and think you can just take some methadone for recreational use it will KILL YOU. I hope the Guardian appointed to Dannielynn gets her to safety soon, I fear for her....Protective custody until they get results from paternity.
I think HKS is going to do something stupid (suicide). Everyone should be praying for the safety of the baby..

First of all the Methadone should of been in a lock box, more so if you have kids. Not just laying around in a her fridge for people to take at any time.
She must have been taking alot of methadone to be getting high off of it.

I never would have thought that this would have happened to her. I do think that she was depressed about her son dying and with the drugs near so just went over the edge. As far as the baby is concerned. If the baby's father is Brickhard or Brickhead give him the baby and at this age she will not know exactally what is happening.

FIRST OF ALL....LET ME JUST STATE THAT "SHER" (#6 COMMENT) YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF! HOW DARE YOU EVEN MAKE ANY COMMENTS WHAT SO EVER ON ANY INFORMATION THAT I AM CERTAIN YOU KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT AND DEFINATLEY AREN'T ANY EXPERT IN....EXCEPT MAYBE THE WHORE PART. I HAVE BEEN ON METHADONE FOR 8 YEARS AND HAVE HAD TWO BEAUTIFULL CHILDREN BOTH OF WHOM ARE IN THE TALENTED AND GIFTED PROGRAMS AT THEIR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. PEOPLE MISUNDERSTAND THE USE OF METHADONE. YES IT IS A DRUG GIVEN TO PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN HOOKED ON HEROIN, WHICH I HAVE NEVER EVER TRIED, AND IT IS GIVEN TO PEOPLE THAT HAVE EXTREME PAIN ISSUES. NOW WHILE I CANNOT SPEAK ON BEHALF OF ANNA AS TO WHY SHE WAS ON THE MEDICATION, BUT IF YOU WOULD DO SOME RESEARCH INTO THE DRUG ITSELF, YOU WILL LEARN THAT NOT ONLY DOES IT NOT GIVE THE PERSON TAKING IT ANY TYPE OF EUPHORIC FEELING OR "BUZZ", IT ALSO BLOCKS YOU FROM OBTAINING ANY BUZZ FROM ANY OTHER DRUG, PRESCRIPTION OR ILLEGAL. NOW SINCE I AM EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT METHADONE, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT I WANT. IF ANNA NICOLE SMITH NEEDED METHADONE FOR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, I AM SURE BOTH SHE AND THE DOCTOR WERE WELL AWARE OF ANY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS ON HER OR HER BABY. I DO NOT HOWEVER, THINK SHE IS A DRUG-FREE INNOCENT PERSON, BUT THAT IS NOT FOR ME TO DECIDE OR JUDGE. I THINK SOME OTHER PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE A STEP BACK AND WORRY ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR OWN LIVES BY LOOKING IN A MIRROR INSTEAD OF FEEDING OFF OTHER PEOPLES PROBLEMS. FIX YOUR OWN LIFE!!

Without meaning ANY disrespect or disgust, is it possible ( with all the sperm freezing and negotiating) that anna could have carried ( by invetro fertilization) Daniels child? Could that be why Stern is so quick to produce Annas will and so slow at produceing his own DNA sample? He KNEW what her will left to whom and to whom it would be going to. Also Marshall left Danny a great deal of money, where is it now? The childs name indicates it was named "after" Danny. Can Dannys DNA be tested now? iI this were to become a real scenerio, it would explain ALOT of the actions,secrets and mysteries. It has been indicated by more than one,and needs researched. Again i intend absolutely NO disrespect and wish only for Anna and Danny to rest in peace, the baby to be well cared for and not be traumatized by those that lived off her mother for so long

HKS has always looked straight, and always seemed to be watching out for AN, why is everyone blaming him for everything?? I think Anna's life was always so dramatic that finally Howard also starting using, like I said he always looked straight and respectful, until Daniel died. Now poor Howard looks stressed out, I think Anna has put that man through hell, and I think he took it because he always loved him and had to watch the woman he loved and cared for flaunt herself to all sorts of men throughtout their work/friend relationship. Give Howard a break, he is trying to deal with both deaths, a baby girl and all of the media crap that has basically blamed him for murder.
