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.

Being addicted to Soma is a nightmare.....I have lived it and it's crazy trying to get off of it. This med does work to kill the pain but it's addicting because if you're mentally hurting, it numbs that pain too for a while. After 15 mins or so you feel as if you're on a soft, warm pillow and the world doesn't seem so cruel. You do things and become a different person under it's influence. Once you're sober (or run out of medicine) you're brought back to reality with a sudden brutality and it's very depressing. Getting through a drug depression is HELL. It's awful once people know you have a problem and judge you. You feel isolated, helpless, and consequently seek more to keep from hurting and dealing with all the crap you've brought on yourself. Vicious cycle.....all I can say is I feel bad for this guy but he's better off in a weird way. At least the pain is over. God only knows life in this world can really suck if you're sensitive and bright enough to know what's really going down.

WTH    

WTH is going on with holly-weird and the doctors giving all these celebs drugs!!! Why on earth do these stars have so many damn so called medical problems? Is it a side effect to having too much money and access? Who's next? We should start a bidding war on who is the next one to go and for the same stupid reason! At this point we can almost nail it!
Someone better do something about these doctors over prescribing...we have lost so many , so young!
Thoughts go to, Heath, Anna, Michael, Brittany, and now Corey!
This is BS! The doctors make them become addicted! Plan and simple!

If this prescription information is true, that is one crooked psychiatrist. Taking that combination of drugs is a death sentence, whether you take all four at once everyday or choose to take more, the combo will eventually destroy your organs. Valium, Soma, and Haloperidol are all meant to slow you down and calm you down, & are to be theoretically taken in that nature by one whome suffers from Hyperpsychosis, but you still wouldn't take Vicodin for that. If that was the case, he should have been in a state hospital, I'm not kidding. It's on a similar level as Mid-grade Schizophrenia. You should never give that combination of drugs to someone with an enlarged heart. Especially, one who's admitted they "love Valium". Not knowing his medical history, I believe he should have only been on Haloperidol to treat his depression, in order to help the recovery of dependence on other drugs. If the psychiatrist didn't have a physical to refer to, the psychiatrist is at fault for not seeking the proper medical history in the first place.

Burt Reynolds said he used to take 50 Halcion (hardcore sleeping pills) a day on a regular basis. I think that beats 85 Valiums. Burt wins this one!

Don't believe everything you read. You have no idea if this information is true or not. You have no idea whether Corey was taking 85 or so pills a day. Only God knows. You think TMZ is God? If so, then you have met to meet God! GET MY DRIFT IDIOTS!

people like this ruin it for long term chronic pain sufferers and disabled peeps like me who depend on these powerful pain pills to function daily. We need to closely audit each and every RX doc's write and avoid his abuse.
