Dr. Murray

You Give Propofol

A Bad Name

9/15/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Bad NameThere's a new drug problem in the U.S. -- Propofol.

We've called a bunch of hospitals and anesthesiologists who tell us ... since Michael Jackson's death a number of patients were worried sick about being put under with Propofol. The docs have had to walk their patients through the procedures they use to ensure safety.

We're told some patients are outright refusing to be put under with the drug that killed M.J.

The medical experts we've spoken with say Propofol is a great drug that is relatively safe when administered properly -- that was clearly not the case with Jackson.

My son has to get regular spinal taps because of Leukemia. I don't know what we would do without proforol. It's a magic drug. Once the drip is started he sleeps instantly and when the drip is stopped he almost wakes immediately without any hang over feeling. Of course he is on several monitors and it is administered properly.

i would make sure the doctor is a real doctor and not a witch doctor first. Its to easy for these witch doctors to get a hold of these kind of drugs how the hell can this happen when propofol is only supposed to be used in hospital.the law is needing to be changed this should never have happened.when is murray going to be arrested.

@26,The doctor didn't make any error.He was right on target!The only minor inconvenience was that the other more "safe" medications he gave MJ earlier didn't interact causing a respiratory arrest as they planned.He ended up having to activate the plan B (propofol),and that presented the 'doc' some challenges.Getting rid of security cameras,clearing his tracks in Las Vegas,getting rid of Oxygen tanks in the house etc...

26. One person had 40 million reasons, another; 200 million, another; 450 million, and so forth and so on. It wasn't just the Dr. who made an error and waited 4+hours just so the proponol would dissapate, then lied all over the place like a bad fart in the wind. Just an FYI: Be very leery going to that movie. some things are really not as they appear! It's evident in the trailer.

Something is not right with the trailer. I just can't quite put my finger on it, just yet.

I sure hope Dr. Murray is being surveiled by LE, to make sure he doesn't leave the country.

I'm trying to be patient, I just can't remember ever seeing it take so long to arrest someone?

Something is just not right and things aren't adding up.

Team Harvey, based on this blah post, I'm guessing your "sources" STILL aren't giving you the goods on the REAL news related to Michael Jackson and June 25, meaning when the crooks involved are getting arrested and what criminal charges they'll face.

It looks like TMZ will be stuck reporting those developments at the same time as the media at large. That's gotta suck for y'all, and I wonder if the LAPD et al suck equally in their investigation OR if their investigation is about more or something other than what the public has been led to believe.

Talk about things that make you go "Hmmm..." My bets are all on Door #2 at the moment.

@34, I wouldn't worry too much.There will be lots of people telling stories now that MJ is dead and can't deny anything,just like the Billie Jeans that showed up in court.I'm surprised no one came up with any "stories" yet,but it's just a matter of time.It will not be easy to see justice being done.My guess is when someone gets indicted,we'll hear more lies.

I seem to remember that MJ was using and asking around and offereing big money for Propofol before Dr. Murray was engaged to administer it in the improper setting of a home bedroom. Not to mention many other drugs.

Weren't the leaking reports saying that he really didn't have enough in his system to kill him, "acute intoxication" or not? Like, less than the level commonly given for anesthesia? That there were other drugs present?

Trying to stir up some more hysteria in the absence of a breaking new chapter in this story, TMZ?

..RE #38...WHY? In order to assure that Conrad Murray will not be left alive to be brought to trial?

Or that no jury will be able to be seated in any county in California?

Or if so that a mistrial will be inevitable?

The LAPD has already done a good enough job of that by not securing the crime scene.
