Medicines Found in Heath's Apartment

1/23/2008 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed two of the medications found at Heath Ledger's apartment were Xanax and Valium, both anti-anxiety drugs. Cops also found Ambien, along with several medications prescribed in Europe.

Heath's body has since been transported from the Medical Examiner's office to the Campbell Funeral Home in NY.

I"m guessing the drugs from Europe are some hardcore opiates. Which he snorted w/ the 20. Or he did a bunch of coke and took the xanax/valium to "come down"....lethal combo.

I feel for his family, his daughter especially.

I will reserve judgement for Heath until the full story comes out.

My heart is broken for his family. Remember....he was someone's son, father, friend, hero. He was loved. We all should be so lucky. So quit judging.

#4, yes they were all prescription drugs but let me tell you, those are the most commonly abused prescription drugs out there.

I say it was an accidental OD

CNN just reported that no illegal drugs nor any residue on the $20 bill were found in the apartment......but there was a rolled up $20 bill that has not been tested yet

I feel so bad for him, he seemed lost without his fiance and daughter. Some people just can't handle certain things in life and need something to numb the pain.He was a great actor.

excuse me ... #4.. just because they are prescription drugs, doesnt mean they cant be abused.. I've known lots of addicts that abused ativan, valium, and xanax.. the same withdrawls as heroin almost.

Rolled Up $20 Found Near Body...The bill would be taken to a lab for testing, though no visible drug residue was found on it, police said. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly released the information at a Manhattan news conference, but did not elaborate on whether police think the bill, discovered on the floor near Ledger's bed, may have been used to snort drugs.

His autopsy is inconclusive...

drugs of this nature are, in general, used by those who are suffering from terrible emotional pain. there is no need to be saying "junkie" and so on; that is merely speculative

Policemen/ coroner personel always collect all medications during anyone's death scene....... the corner needs to know what people were taking for toxicolgy... a person could die from drug interaction, which is common all over the world to a drug allergy......... If any normal person dies.. they will do the same thing for you 2.
The man wasn't some drugged up person.........Seems like he really needed a break from work.......
Actors must really love their work to deal with awful working hours......

People who do coke often use benzo's like Xanax or sleeping medication to avoid the horrible come down and get some sleep.

It's a terrible thing to note how many people are being systematically offed by PRESCRIPTION drugs in this country. Too bad all the fun one's have to be illegal.

Xanax is one of the most popular prescription drugs to abuse. It makes some people act like zombies and some will do crazy things they would normally never do and then they wont remember a thing. Poor Heath...it really bothered me to hear about his death. Another senseless loss. I feel so bad for his family.

I lived in europe before........they don't presribe hard medications for common things as they do here........

The only thing I would worry about is different presrciptions being prescribed by different physicians interacting... As the doctors wouldn't know necessarily what you were taking...unless you mentioned it.
