Whitney Houston

Few Pills Recovered

at Death Scene

2/13/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Multiple medicine bottles were found in the Beverly Hills hotel room where Whitney Houston diedLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ ... multiple medicine bottles were found in the Beverly Hills hotel room where Whitney Houston died ... but we're told there were NOT a lot of pills at the scene.

Among the pills ... ibuprofen (painkiller), Xanax (anti-depressant), Midol (for menstrual cramps), amoxicillin (for treating bacterial infections) ... and more.

We're told the amoxicillin was prescribed recently because Whitney had been suffering from a sore throat.

We're told some of the pills were old ... some issued in 2011 ... but some of the bottles were from 2012. We're told the bottles that were recovered at the scene did not contain a lot of pills.

Sources tell us ... some of the prescriptions were filled at the infamous Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills ... where Michael Jackson had numerous prescriptions filled for Demerol and other drugs.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... it's possible Whitney suffered a heart attack caused by an adverse reaction to her medication, but it is simply too early to make an official call on the cause of death.

We're told the L.A. Coroner's Office has removed the hold on Whitney's body ... which means her family can now have Whitney transported back to Atlanta, where the singer will be laid to rest.

Xanax is NOT an anti-depressant. It is an anti-anxiety medication to treat anxiety. BIG difference..

Do not drink alcohol while taking Xanax. This medication can increase the effects of alcohol. Xanax may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it. Xanax (alprazolam) belongs to a group of drugs called benzodiazepines. It works by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. This results in a reduction in nervous tension (anxiety). Xanax is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression. Xanax may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. To mix alcohol consumption with Xanax will cause a fatal reaction; and should not be used by addicts or alcoholics at all.

This woman died of an overdose and that is clear to see. Its sad yes, but clear to see. The medications that she was taking should NOT be mixed with ANY alocohol of ANY kind. It will KNOCK you out and it will STOP your breathing. Bottom line here is that she was taking this medication to help in her recovery. I'm sure her nervous system was shot from the drug use and that also was clear to see. If her heart did not give out from her massive drug use then she has died of an overdose. What is more sad is that she and her "friends" see nothing wrong with her having a good time and having a drink to celebrate. Really? She is a recovering addict and alocohol played a big part in that for her. You can NOT keep one in play you have to do away with all addiction and stay away from it period.

I loved her too and hate that this has happened to her but at the same time addiction is a very powerful thing and it doesn't seem she had the proper support around her.
