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.

Does anyone know why Anna Nicole needed methadone in the first place?

Not to sound stupid but it's pretty clear to me that Sandeep is in deep s#!@! However,
isn't there a responsibility of the pharmacist to report suspicious activities like these?

I know when someone pays over $10,000 in cash to bail someone out of jail; it has to be reported to the Feds. Isn't there some sort of ethics laws for pharmacies?

Not saying the pharmacist is at fault at all, it seems it would draw some sort of suspicion to see this amount of drugs being written by the same doctor or to the same patient?

To number 408.....you're wrong. Anna was not his only client. She did at one time want him to exclusively photo her, and he did that for her for a while. He may not be the most successful photo journalist but he made his own living, and still does?

i cannot beleive that dr. but, i cannot wait to see what happen's to howard stern. he helped put her in the grave.... i hope larry is the father to get her the hell away from stern. i felt so sorry for her. she just wanted to find love. howard kept her drugged up, so he could control her, and her money. larry was the best thing that happened to anna. i hope she will rest in peace, when howard is frying . he wanted her to get out of the state's. he hated larry, why else would he take her there and pimped her out to bahamas high up's so she would get permamancy there. poor daniel, . he was concerened that is why he hired a private eye. i think that is why he passed on. howard was up to know good and he wanted her away from everyone. he is a asshole. and i can't wait till larry is proven to be the father and has to move out of the house. and he get's sent to jail to rot. 2 innocent people were in howard's way. please get dannielynn out of there and to her father before something happen's to her. howard does not care about anyone but howard. we will all get the last laugh. poor anna and daniel unfortunetly got in his way.

Just an FYI...I am sure ANS was on WAY too many drugs. But, I am surprised after reading all these posts, that no one has mentioned that methadone is totally SAFE for a pregnant woman. It does no harm whatsoever to the baby. It was made to help people off heroin, but is used for severe pain and also to get junkies off narcotics. That being said, she obviously took much more than the required dose, it is a very easy drug to overdose on.

Ummm... Now a private investigator is coming to the forefront to say that he was worried about his mother. He said that HKS was totally alienating his mother from him and would hang up the phone when he called...??? This thing is creepier and creepier... I bet HKS will be in big trouble

Dr. Kapoor, the Psychiatrist (Dr. Kristine Eroshevich), the Pharmacy (?), as well as Howard K. Stern should all be cuplable in the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Someone was trying to keep this woman doped up for some unknown reason. Hope this all comes out and all is held liable. Also, "Entertainment Tonight" should also be held responsible in continuing to film ANS when she was strung out on who knows what. Why weren't they saying someone needs to help her. The film crew and the interviewer and producer. If you listen to the ET stories they seem to also protect all the "innocent" so-called friends of ANS, probably just to get the story. How can any of these people sleep at night.

In the know...    

Some one feel free to correct me if I am incorrect, but it is my understanding that a doc alone cannot prescribe methadone for addiction treatment, i.e. to wean them off of other opiates such as heroin, etc. That kind of administration must be done through an approved methadone clinic that is monitored by thegovernment. Let's hope that the methadone that Sandy prescribed was for pain relief or he is in even bigger trouble, unless he owns a methadone clinic to which none of us have knowledge of. Sandy is in truth a kind man who made a really STUPID error in judgment. My opinion is that he got all caught up in the "star and glamour" factor and it is going to cost him big time. In truth it is a real shame as Sandy is smart and probably inhis lifetime would contribute positive things to the medical community. STUPID STUPID STUPID -

383. It was Larry Birkhead that mentioned Anna Nicole wanted a 10 carat diamond ring at the hearing in Florida, NOT Howard Stern.
