Jackson Drug Aliases

7/2/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson used a slew of aliases to score prescription meds, and we know the two names that could unlock the key to gross abuse by Jackson and some prominent doctors.

We've learned Jackson frequently used the names Omar Arnold and Jack London to get powerful drugs, including Demerol. Jackson also used the name of one of his bodyguards, as well as the name of the office manager for one of his doctors.

The DEA, which is joining to assist the LAPD in its investigation of several doctors who prescribed drugs to Jackson, will be hunting down these names and others.

Sources tell us the prescription abuse was so egregious, one doctor would call the pharmacy and say Jackson was coming down to get Demerol. The pharmacy would then fill the prescription, leaving the patient's name blank.

How sad that Hollywood stories all seem to end up with drug abuse. Why aren't there more success stories out there on recovery?

All right, I agree his father was probably one nasty son of a bitch; HOWEVER, the person saying his dad gave him lupus is an idiot.
This comes directly from my Medical-Surgical Nursing Textbook. "Lupus is thought to be an autoimmune process; that is, abnormal antibodies are produced and react with client's tissues." and from Medline Plus... "Some researchers think autoimmune diseases occur after infection with an organism that looks like certain proteins in the body. The proteins are later mistaken for the organism and wrongly targeted for attack by the body's immune system." Nowhere in my training as an RN have I heard that Lupus is "beat into" someone. Before you start spouting about stuff you don't know about maybe you should do some reading. I'm afraid you "don`t know smit about medical" either.

The Doctors should lose their license and get probation.

This is all so disgusting. This whole incident was driven by greed. Greed by all the people who enabled Michael to get drugs, drugs that at the least the doctors knew could eventually disable or kill him. Instead of taking a stand and refusing him, they decided that because they knew someone would get Michael what he wanted that it might as well be them and get rich at the same time. Shame on all of them. The doctors should go to jail and have their licenses revoked at the very least.This all could have been avoided. His family and friends should have kept trying to intervene to try to save him.Tie him up and commit him. Something could have been done. He was worth saving. The cowardly, greedy people who helped Michael into his coffin will have to face their maker one day and will have to answer for their contribution to the death of this sweet, gentle man. Look what you've done. I know Michael was at fault for not trying harder to beat his addiction. Why didn't someone speak up, go to the media, someone, anyone. Screw the confidentiality agreements. When will someone speak up and try to save these poor troubled souls? Michael needed your help and by giving in to his addiction and his money you are no better than a drug connection. How are all of you feeling now?

I wish I could get a "good doctor".

I could go to my Dr. with a bullet in my knee cap and he
would say something like "You should put some ice on that."

No one has seen Michaels Medical Records so there is no proof he had Lupus. His PR firm could have put that out in the media to to put spin on his drug problem. Just because it was on TV or you read it doesn't mean it is so.

You don't have his records so you can't sit there and say he had lupus. It is nothing more then Rumor like most of the reporting on him to date

People ask why it took the doctor 30 minutes to call the doctor and reportedly he was still on the bed when he should have been on the floor. Reason for this....MJ was drugged through IV, the doctor and his accomplice (if any) needed time to get all the IV and needles out of MJ. Why didn't the medics who first attended to MJ at his house did not report finding him connected to it any IV's? Because they didn't. The doctor had to disconnect MJ from all that before medics arrived. As reported, Propofol, a powerful anesthesia, was found in the house after Jackson died. Various medical experts tell us there is absolutely no medical justification for Jackson to have had this drug in his home -- it is used to knock people out before surgery. It is administered through an IV.

YES BEATING can give you LUPUS and MJ knew where he got it from.Thus he overloved his kids and family was everything to him.ANY beaten kid knows if they are weaken they will suffer.A RN or LPN maybe a PH-D? in medical.All the signs are there the beatings are there the masks the skin the dark glasse.When the body is wounded by beatings it sends a message to the brain too many beatins and the nuro system can`t read that signal right and the system is overloaded.Also rememebr he was also burned and had many plasticas done.BUT it was reported in 1986 he had LUPUS before much cuttings where done.The fire happened in 1984.It can be proven by medicals when he was damaged.They will never look at that as his father is getting to 2nd look at his body by medical staff.he use to piss his pants when his father beat the smit out of him FACT and no other person is said to have beaten him.He could`nt be around his father and that is a physlogical reaction and shows the damage and mind reactiing to danger signs once again.FACTs and proven and stil a ongoing state of mind those pattern never change they are set in to the nuropathways forever.

God Flanker, that is so true! My friend went to her HMO doc with panic attacks so bad she couldn't leave her house and hyperventilated to the point of almost passing out. He told her to take up yoga and meditation. Wanker! What exactly was Valium invented for, anyway?
