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 a benzodiazepine.

After reading all these comments about Whitney Houston, I just want to say that you all are really inconsiderate. Her poor child could easily get on the internet and read all this crap you all are posting. How would you feel if this was your sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, etc. I bet you all would be upset if someone was to say "let the crackhead rest in peace" or she was dumb as hell for ruining her life" . The truth is you never know what someone is going through. Some good people find themselves making bad decisions, simply because they don't know what to do. She didn't know how to reach out for that help. She was obviously going through something noone could understand. Stop bashing this women. We didn't know her, true, but she was a human being who had problems. If you want to continue all this non sense, fine, but I think everyone should respect this lady and her family. She may not be here, but her family is. I feel for anyone who loses their mother, and anyone who has lost their child. It's sad that all the negative things are being discussed and all the good things about her being ignored. Well all I can say is thank GOD for BET, because they dedicated nothing but 3 hours celebrating the life of Whitney Houston, her voice and her personailtiy and her contributions, while all the media is bashing her.

I heard a reporter say there should be restrictions and or drug testing in the music industry not a bad idea.And family members should also get involved if they suspect something. R>I>P whitney

I think that she was murdered because their was not enough pills to kill her and before that she was at a bar patying and got in a fight so someone and they spiked her drink or followed her home

It was do***ented that Ms. Huston was on amoxicillin this could have been the culprit, she may have been allergic to this antibiotic not knowing sometimes we ignore symptoms and say it will go away. it can cause tachycardia a heart arrythmia along with other symptoms that may have led to her death. The vagus nerve is affected. It may also cause anxiety and increase panic attachs.Just a thought before since erveryone has assumed that it may be drug related as well as alcohol related. i realize that because of her former drug history peoples minds tend to run away. lets just wait and allow the tests to come back. In any event she has died and this is a tragedy.

this is strange because none of these drugs are considered lethal be any means. xanax is an anxiety suppressant that make you feel mellow but as for the rest of the prescriptions are not "feel good drugs" at all....midol -cramps, amoxicillin-antibiotic, ibuprofen- antiflammatory.not exactly "get-high" drugs of choice

So so sad about Whitney Houston. Another statistic of loss of life do to drugs!! Lady Day, Dorothy Dandridge, and Michael Jackson. I had so hoped that Whitney would have found her way through this and regain her status. This will never be! She will live on through her music! We love u Songbird! Please keep a close watch on Bobby Chris!

I am so sick of People with there Negativity. Whitney Houston was a Person, a Human being. Let her have her Peace. She couldn't have any of that while she was alive because People were constantly harassing her, talking bad about her and putting her down. No one here on Earth has the right to judge her. None of you are GOD. Beside I am sure everyone of you naysayers have issues going on in your life as well. I am sure you all have things in your life you may not be proud of either. But unlike Whitney you get to hide yours.
I just wish People would respect Whitney and Her Family enough to let them Mourn the loss of her as a Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt and Cousin in Peace. I have always been a huge Fan of Whitney's and has never given up on her. I will continue to uplift her even in spirit because I appreciated her Legendary Talent that she shared with all of us lucky People all the way up until the end. I Will Always Love You, Whitney. Fly with the Angels Nippy!
