Corey Haim -- Vicodin, Valium, Soma Found

3/11/2010 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the 4 pill bottles found in the apartment where Corey Haim collapsed yesterday included the generic versions of Vicodin and Valium ... and the same doctor prescribed all 4 powerful meds just days before Haim died.

Law enforcement sources tell us the pill bottles retrieved in the apartment of Haim's mother are hydrocodone (Vicodin), diazepam (Valium), haloperidol (an antipsychotic med) and Soma (a muscle relaxer).

We're told all 4 meds were prescribed by a prominent Los Angeles psychiatrist. Sources say all 4 meds were prescribed the same day -- several days before Haim died.

Vicoden is not a powerful drug!!! Experienced drug users (myself included) can take dozens of the most powerful Vics(HP/EZ) without even showing a sign that we had ingested them. The valium and the halidol are a different story..halidol doesn't have much abuse potential.. what was he doing with those...they'll just put you to sleep in high doses and kill in higher doses...
The doc should not be given those out for recreational use(nor any drug for rec use, though there are quite a few croakers that just want the extensive co-pay they charge..)
they say he was taking up to 80 pills a day when he was heavy using? the other additives in the vics will destroy your liver...
Drugs need to be legalized....maybe a card given to non-violent criminals after taking an intelligent use course...there is incredible creative potential found in drugs..they can be taken intelligently, not like Mr. Haim here...

RE: Post number 2 by Sharon. Sue the makers of these drugs? Why? Aren't the doctors who prescribe them suppose to keep track of the meds they give someone? And, speaking of a "someone" isn't that so called adult suppose to READ the label and take the drugs accordingly? Are these so called stars that stupid that they can't read and follow simple directions for themselves? The drug makers have nothing to do with this. They merely make the drugs. If someone is incapable of taking the drugs correctly then that is THEIR fault. So, if I fall down the steps in my house and break my leg, I should be able to sue the step maker for me being clumsy? Unless a person is mentally challenged or for some medical reaon unable to make an informed choice, then the DOCTOR should make the judement call, if they should be given certain drugs. If, however,the person is mentally capable of handling the prescription, then it's THEIR responsibility to take thr drug or drugs correctly. It's not up to any company to have to baby sit anyone. And, why ANY docotor that is worthy of the title would give all sorts of meds without cross referencing them for interactions is beyond me. So, maybe part of the blame needs to fall on the doctor and the patient, NOT the drug company.

Addiction is a disease...so is Depression..Almost sounds pre-meditated..his suicide that is.. Very tragic loss and weary world for those that live constantly in pain...phyically and emotionally.
Condolences to his family..almost certain they knew of the above and tried to intervene or save him at one time or another in his journey with such. Love him in Lost Boys..
