Anna Nicole

Drugs on the Bed

10/13/2009 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The first witness in the preliminary hearing over Anna Nicole Smith's prescription drug death testified authorities found a baby bottle of Pedialyte on her bed, along with a bottle of Cipro.

Pedialyte is used to rehydrate children when they experience diarrhea and vomiting. Anna had been battling the flu.

Cipro is an antibiotic used to treat infections.

Anna was found unresponsive in her hotel room on February 8, 2007 at the Hard Rock in Seminole, Florida. Her cause of death was a sleeping med along with 8 other prescription drugs.

Howard K. Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, and Khristine Eroshevich are charged with fueling a drug addict's habit.

The baby bottle evidence could be important because prosecutors are trying to show Anna Nicole was so incapacitated from drugs she could barely function.

That's "Cipro", as in Ciprofloxacin, which is considered a pretty big-gun antibiotic.

They were all contributing to her problem, and I hope like heck they all end up in jail. They knew what they were doing. First her son, and then her. Too obvious what they were up to. Her getting sick wasn't in the plans but, its certainly played out well for them, so far.

First of all, a baby bottle of Pedialyte on Anna's bed doesn't mean anything. She had a baby at the time, and baby's drink Pedialyte. The media is implying that she was using the baby bottle herself. How dumb. This story is just basically sad from beginning to end. RIP Anna.

Using Pedialyte as evidence of her being incapacitaed is a joke. I know a lot of adults that drink Pedialyte, as their drink of choice, during a hangover.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

Anna was a user and manipulator, and I despise the fact that she almost succeeded in keeping Larry Birkhead from his daughter.

But the people around her were drug pushers, and they should be punished. Period.

it isn't the pedialyte that is key here, it is she was using a baby bottle to take it.

It's the "Seminole Hard Rock" in Hollywood, FL. FYI.

When they say "baby bottle of pedialyte" does that mean Anna was actually drinking it from a baby bottle? That's definitely strange. I've always felt a bit sorry for Anna Nicole...she is a lot like Marilyn Monroe in that she was so taken advantage of by people claiming to love and care for her. I think Howard K. Stern and those doctors were doing just that...keeping her drugged up for their own gain. So long as she was high out of her mind, HKS could spend her money, make himself the executor of her estate, and take advantage of her in every way possible. And I think he also enabled her son's drug addiction...so Daniel couldn't do anything to help his mother. And I even think that Larry Birkhead may have been interfering with HKS's free-for-all, which is why HKS convinced Anna to cut off contact with him and deny his paternity (even claiming HKS was the baby daddy). I hope HKS and those doctors are held responsible and pay for what they did to Anna.

Pedialyte comes in single serving baby bottles. All that proves is that she was dehydrated and taking an antibiotic for the flu.

So what?
