Corey Haim Confessed Valium, Soma Abuse

3/11/2010 7:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim admitted to having problems with Valium and Soma during a taping of "The Two Coreys" back in 2006 ... the same drugs that were found in the apartment where he collapsed.

Corey Haim

During the episode, Haim goes to the hospital after complaining of heart problems -- which also coincides with the L.A. County Coroner's Office's findings that he had pulmonary congestion and an enlarged heart at the time of his death.

As we already reported, a psychiatrist prescribed Haim Valium and Soma, along with Vicodin and haloperidol (an antipsychotic med), a few days before he died.

The Coroner has not determined the cause of death.

Soooo lemme guess...Corey Haim was "murdered" by his psychiatrist, right? If we're going to convict Conrad Murray for the murder of Whacko Jacko I think, to be fair, we should string this guy up too.

Someone get Jermaine and LaToya on the phone!

Christ, he really aged badly the last 3 or so years of his life. He looked like he started drawing his eyebrows on for Christs sake and gained 60 lbs. I can't believe his friends or family didn't hold an intervention on his ass.

um, no thanks    

Not enough information and it's all speculation at this point, certainly nothing concrete enough to put he died of an OD on a headline.
Media needs to back off and give it a little time.
A large amount of the population has some of the same things in their homes.
You can't put it out there until you know more.
He and his family have in deed been through a lot but they still deserve some basic restraint.

You can die from CHF acutely or chronically.... could be drug influence directly or indirectly.

If this is true, this psychiatrist needs a psychiatrist. Why would anyone in their right mind prescribe a freaking combination of Valium, Soma, Vicodin and HALDOL of all things?--Especially to someone with a hard core long history of drug abuse. The doc in this clip says that Corey needs a cardiac workup. How about a freaking simple chest x-ray right there at the ER? It would have immediately shown that he had an enlarged heart, and he should have been hospitalized right then and there. A doctor should have found that he had an enlarged heart, not a Medical Examiner. People's hearts enlarge because they are not functioning correctly to begin with. The heart gets bigger to try and COMPENSATE for not working right. I don't know that docs could have fixed this. It sounds like he ravaged his body with drugs for such a LONG period of time that his heart just gave out at the age of 38. Sounds like he knew what was happening to him.

Tmz does a good job of reporting on what gets the most hits. Right now this story is getting the most hits. I think the reporting was fair and was showing that he did have a previous heart condition. With that illness and the meds he was on he ran the risk of dying. He did not want to die but he was an addict he did have a heart condition and he fought the battle for years. I am confused as to why comment on a story a lot of you did not seem to want to read in the first place. We get to know some of these celeberities through media and their acting. We relate to them because we all have some family or friends that have been there. I find it relevant and grew up watching a very chrasmatic promising actor. I would say that there is an active interest in this and tmz should report on it. Maybe if you comment that you do not like it you should choose not to read it or watch it. They cover lots of other stories.

Valium and Soma will basically both do the same thing. Why was he prescribed both?
