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.

""""23. Man this sher girl is really jealous of Anna. Every board I read theres the name SHER. You are one jealous skank. You act like she was with your husband.
This script does look fake. I work in a Doctor's office, and this is just not how Doctors work.

Working in one doesn't make you smart about them I guess.

Most doctor's have different scrip forms, not only state to state, but hell, even next door they can look totally different.

And I'm not sure what's sadder, that this person is going off on Sher for being on all the boards, or that she visits them herself? What's this Sher supposed to do? Change opinions board to board?

Linda, if you look closer you'll see that the document isn't the actual prescription, it's the shipping invoice to send the prescription out of the country. I work for a shipping firm and this does look quite real.

5:28 Sher - How many post are you going to make about Anna? I totally agree you are a jealous woman in need of a man. Anna could have any man she wanted. She didn't pick Howard to be the daddy. He scares the heck out of me just looking at him. He is guilty, or he would have already had DNA done.
Sher, take notes, you jealous huzzy.

he won't lose his license. this happens often in Hollywood and has been going on for decades. Karen Carpenter juggled thyroid prescriptions in the early eighties to speed up her metabolism.Only a blind MD in early stages of dimensia would have written her a scritp. I feel sorry for Anna Nicole. Yes, she was an adult, but one who needed help and no one seemed to care enough to help her.Sad.

....who knew methadone was so cheap?......good thing, too, because it's turning out that Anna and Howard seemed to have a routine where they got everything for free one way or another......all, apparently, because Anna would do anything it took.......free homes, free residency, free hotel rooms, free meals - all in exchange for some piece of Anna.....she was the drugged up star of the circus always in the center ring doing tricks.......any good animal trainer knows how to reward the animal after it does the behavior you want....in this case the reward happened to be drugs........as for the good doctor, his ass is grass......this will not be ignored by the medical board of California because it's too high profile....

repost    

Does anyone remember that Laurie Payne said that Anna did nothing for herself and that she was told when to give Meds to her. Howard was the one in charge of that when she was with him. Maybe he did not force them down her throat but he could have gave her more and more when ever he wanted.

The B12 injections does anyone believe they were used when Anna had to appear in court so sh e would not appear stoned. Then when the important stuff was over she would be given her other drugs to keep her high and out of the the know as to what was going on.

Below is the contact info for the CA Department of Medical Licensing. Perhaps we should all call and ask if common for licensed CA MD's to prescribe controlled drugs to pregnant women who live in another country!

VL- The word you were looking for is "you're" not "your" as in you're a moron,
No one is jealous of a dead skank junkie who woldn't know her baby-daddy if he sat on her face....wait...heh...I bet a few of them did that.
She's been too HIGH to know who/what/when she got knocked up.

btw, you're right about one thing. That Methadone Rx proves nothing.....chances are she gave it to her darling dead son!

That little girl's life is already screwed. The pap will relentlessly follow her through life and she'll never trust that the people who "love" her (much like her mother) really do, or atre ju$t in it for the big buck$.

It's ugly....that of which will come full circle one day :/

Are you guys retarded?
It was prescribed at 8 months. Not at 3, not at 6, but weeks before she was due. She was addicted to heavy duty painkillers, so don't you think she'd want them after she gave birth? A lot of women turn to percocet, darvocet, oxycontin, and dilaudid after giving birth. And by a lot, i mean the addicted ones. My point is, he probably prescribed them for AFTER her birth. it's still screwed up to prescribe an addict an addicting medication.

PUBLIC SAFETY IS AT STAKE    

Just FYI -- From today's BahamasUncensored.com -- "There is reportedly an action in Bahamian courts to have the name Howard K. Stern struck off the birth certificate as the father of the baby that was born in The Bahamas to Ms. Smith."

PLEASE will someone place that innocent baby in a loving, safe environment? Now we know they fled to the Bahamas and refused to do the DNA test... the baby would have tested positive for drugs and the real father would be revealed. This is really too much... I pray for that poor child.

#34, If him prescribing a controlled substance to an AKA whom was not under his direct care, didn't live in the country, and 8months pregnant doesn't justify an immediate investigation and revokation of license, I sure as hell don't know what does! I know CA is loopy, but even CA MD's are held to the highest standards and code of ethics!
