Stern: Anna Was Taking Topamax

2/21/2007 6:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith was taking Topamax, a prescription drug for migraine headache treatment, according to Howard K. Stern, under questioning from Judge Larry Seidlin. She was also taking medication for depression from several different doctors.

"Is this really necessary?" asked Stern, objecting to the line of questioning.

what in the world does a seizure medication that used to treat migranes have to do with this? Yes, it says you shouldn't take while pregnant since it crosses the placenta, but come on. They should probably focus on other drugs he was enabling her to take....

>>>JUDGE SEIDLIN,
Please ask if Howard K. Stern's Parents were paid the money from the interviews!!! Find out EXACTLLY how much money his parents wired him this year, ( since he would answer the question) , If it was more than a retired teacher could afford, Your Honor needs to get Howards parents bank records, and check ALL wires to the Bahamas to Howard or his Alias Bank Accounts, and even a ACCOUNT IN DANNILYNN'S name!!! His BODY LANGUAGE says it all!! HE is SWAYING in his chair again & drinking out of a EMPTY CUP!!!! PLEASE JUDGE SEIDLIN..... ask these question!!

>>>JUDGE SEIDLIN,
Pull Howard's & Howard's parents TAX RETURNS for the past 4 years.
Howard's sister has went on Larry King and ET and stated that Howard's parents have been supporting him for "10 YEARS"!! There is a BANK ACCOUNT in the BAHAMAS either in DANNILYNN'S name or HOWARD'S ALIAS, that the money from these INTERVIEW'S & PHOTO'S have been DEPOSITED INTO!! FUNDS for the interviews/photos were most likely paid 3rd Party to HOWARD'S PARENT'S or EVEN HIS SISTER!!!! Your Honor needs to check these things out.

AND HOWARD..... YOU SAID "MORE IMPAIRED"!!!!!

Yeah, you ARE nuts!    

It doesn't have anything to do with it which is why he named that drug instead of the methodone that he signed for its delivery under the alis.

Topomax is evil and would explain alot about ANS' behavior....but it is irrevelant regarding where she should be buried--which should be by her son in the Bahamas.

Dawn (#5) you are RIGHT on the money!!!!

I work in a neurology unit at a hospital, and routinely give Topamax and NO ONE acts like THAT on Topamax.......morphine, methadone, dilaudid perhaps, but NOT Topamax!

I used to take Topamax for migraines. It helps the brain "relax". One of the side effects is weight loss and no it does not make you strung out!

Recently Topamax has been prescribed as a diet drug. It curbs the appetite and is prescribed to anorexics. Topamax is used also as a preventive medication for migraine headaches. It's not something you can get a buzz from using.

Anna went to rehab way before Howard came into the picture Anna took prescription drugs not howard and he did not put a gun to her head to take them this a result of all the abuse fro her mother she did not want to deal with the reality that her mom did not cared about her ,she wanted to be loved and all the lawsuits that she had to deal with please is no wonder she was in that situation.hello the person with the addiction has to want the help.look what the pop princess is doing now.

I don't know where Virgie Arthur found this attorney now at the podium, but he doesn't seem to be too thorough. He's all over the place, just like the judge.

coward stern as a lawyer (so called) you should know that every single one of these questions are vital. and to try and tell a judge that she always spoke like that (impaired sounding) is just ignorant even the child (riley) that they were caring for at the time the footage was shot, knew there was something wrong with her. so my question is what the hell was she doing before the tape was rolling to make that child leave the room and tell coward that "anna has lost her mind" kids may say the darndest things? but they tell it like it is!

I am cracking up at all of you fools. I had to come here and check this site as Howard was speaking of it. Within reading the first few sentences of their report it was evident they were already changing the story!! HAH how pathetic, If you had been listening and paying attention the Judge was referring to the tape played in court yesterday. Them TMZ reports he was trying to leave the stand before answering more. He was moving away from the microphone to converse with cousel as the Judge had just told him to talk to his counsel. haha this place cracks me up!!
