Amy Winehouse

The Prescription Omission

8/23/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amy Winehouse
's family claims no illegal drugs were present in the singer's system at the time of death ... but there's a gaping hole, because they made no mention of prescription drugs.

A source close to the family would not comment on any prescription drugs, even though he and the rest of the family were categorical on illegal drugs.

The family says they have seen toxicology reports which discount illegal drugs. The family did acknowledge Amy had been drinking at the time of her death.
As for prescription drugs, there are a number that contain the opiates similar to heroin, including OxyContin and morphine.

Oh Yea!
By the Way forgot to mention Oxycotin, because it's a legal Opiate , becuase a doctor prescribes it. Mixing it with Alcohol is a Death combination. Got to love the way doctors are prescribing this **** for a sore back or a headache. They are giving the **** out like Candy now days. All in the name of profit. Extremely addictive Crap, psychologically--Psysically --

She's dead. She didn't die from street drugs like Charlie & Brooke will. Let her be.

Maybe because it is none of your business.

If you get prescription drugs for "recreational" usage and are lying to your doctor's in order to get the prescriptions, I would call that illegal drug overdose.
I guess at this point it really doesn't matter to any of us, we kinda see the writing on the wall. But for this family to purposely say their daughter had nothing illegal in her system, actually speaks for itself and they get to stay in denial that's their business.
If that's what keeps them sane, then good for them. They know the truth, just don't accept that they have a very sick child, no shame in admitting that, it is a disease, afterall.

The disease is uncommon though, and it generally affects women between 40 to 60 years. Originally the pain is soft but constant, but gradually over a period of time the pain becomes severe with swelling and burning sensation in the arms or legs, and this portion becomes oversensitive. The pain becomes so strong that in some cases it weakens the muscles. The pain is like electric shocks accompanied with fiery burning feeling.

I'm trying to get off drugs. I don't really take enough to feel high anymore. The world feels really painful with nothing in your system, but I imagine a lot of people would go crazy trying it that way. I don't know the medicine behind it. I went for 5 days with nothing at all and I was pre-occupied all the time.
I think people need happy productive lives filled with music and love... and children if they are lucky enough to have them. I can't even take care of myself, so I keep to myself and just stay out of trouble. Amy Winehouse will be missed by a lot of talented people.

This is a big problem. Today one can buy almost anything on the internet or ask in open forums, where you get it. Another big problem is Ritalin. The kids take to it better to be in school. You can then work and learn effectively. But it makes you sick.
