Jackson Doc's Interest in Sleeping Disorders

7/24/2009 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad MurrayAn interesting turn in the Michael Jackson investigation. Several items were seized at Dr. Conrad Murray's Houston office -- "Pamphlets on Sleep Center."

We're told Jackson may have taken the powerful anesthesia Propofol the day he died because he couldn't sleep. Police believe Dr. Murray may have administered the drug.

The Sleep Center is located near Doctor's Hospital in Houston. Dr. Murray was suspended from Doctor's Hospital -- the administrator tells us he believes the doctor was suspended for not completing medical records in a timely fashion.

As for Dr. Murray's affiliation with the Sleep Center -- a rep from the company hung up when we told them we were TMZ.

Obviously, the doctor is guilty of administering the Propofol to MJ. Only question now is how the LAPD will prove the link. Conrad's going to jail and all the sordid details will come out in the trial. It's hard to believe that nobody in Jackson's entourage reported to the police or any kind of health authority that MJ had been using anesthesia to sleep. Seems kind of obvious that's illegal and dangerous. I guess that's what the blind following the blind is all about.

WTF?? Sleep drug?? Propofol is used for conscience sedation, 2-3 minute sedation max. Its used in Emergency rooms to reduce a dislocated shoulder for example. The patient comes too in under 5 minutes. DO YOUR HOmEWORK TmZ

Was he planning on treating MJ's sleep disorder? What I don't understand is why MJ did not seek out Doctors who
specialized in pain management and in sleep disorders instead he relied on his plastic surgeon and this Dr. for treatments, it sounds like he really did not want to address these problems or maybe he was just using the disorders as an excuse to self medicate and have his doctor of choice medicate him. But never really sought out doctors who could really help him with these issues.
