Corey Haim -- Vicodin, Valium, Soma Found

3/11/2010 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey HaimTMZ has learned the four 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 four meds were prescribed by a prominent Los Angeles psychiatrist. Sources say all four meds were prescribed the same day -- several days before Haim died.

The L.A. County Coroner's Office would not comment on the specific meds found, nor would officials say how many pills -- if any -- were missing from the bottles.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe Haim died from an accidental overdose of meds, though nothing is final until the Coroner's toxicology reports are in.

There have been reports Haim admitted in the past to taking as many as 85 Valium pills a day.

Haim collapsed in his mother's apartment early yesterday and was pronounced dead 2 1/2 hours later.

Either I want this guy as my psychiatrist or I want his license pulled. No one in his right mind sends all those scripts home with a known addict. And he probably won't even get investigated. Rock on, Hollywood docs!

I want to know why doctors are not in jail for prescribing pills in those amounts to known addicts. I think it would be a wise idea if there was a national system created for pharmacys and doctors to know exactly what their patients are taking and how much. Use their SS# with every script that way where ever they go to have it filled it is monitored at the pharmacy/any doctor who fills it. This way any doctor giving pills to people for money causing their deaths...will lose their liscense! And the patient who is an addict can't go shopping for more pills with a new doctor. No known addicts should have access to those kinds of pills...shame on the doctors who write the scripts all for the sake of cashing in! RIP Corey:(

I think we all knew this would turn out to be a drug overdose.

Why do doctors prescribe all those meds to one person on the same day? Especially to a person who has a known drug habit.

huh    

Where's the accountability with these doctors? Prescribing to a known addict is a crime. This needs to stop now.

Holy crap! 85 a DAY?!?!?!

With all the people who have died in the last year(s) -- Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Brittney Murphy, DJ AM, now Corey, the WWE dude, etc...

CHANGE NEEDS TO HAPPEN! Doctors need to be held accountable for their prescription writing! With all of the technology there is available, there is NO excuse whatsoever there isn't a main system for Class II and III medications to be used to help control the patients from doctor shopping as well as monitor the doctors' writing habits.

So sad! When will we wake up and MAKE THE CHANGE?!!??!?!?!?!?

duh    

So, so sad. No one should be sending an addict home with that sort of med-power. Hope that guy is investigated and really TMZ, you're not gonna publish a name? Doctor-patient privilege doesn't apply to the deceased, right?

There needs to be something done about these doctors giving these pill combinations out like candy. How many more celebs are going to die before the goverment does something?

Could someone please explain why a psychiatrist is prescribing vicodin (a synthetic opiate for relieving serious pain)? Perfectly logical to get the other three from a shrink, but they have no business treating physical pain.

Corey Feldman was on Larry King last night and asked that no one speculate on what killed this 38 year old well known drug addict. But who would think it was anything other then drugs. I would be surprised it he did NOT die of an overdose.

Here we go again. Another Doctor guilty of killing a celebrity. It's like blaiming the car or the alcohol for the human stupidity. It works in the courts up in Canada. Only a few years for killing someone while, drunk, on drugs, or just plain stupid.
