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.

Ah, there may not have been a lot of pills in the bottles, because she ingested them? she had been drinking alcohol before going to the hotel. Xanax and alcohol do not mix. Midol is not candy, but some think it is so harmless. Her body was wearing out from years of abuse. My goodness. when is this destruction of people from drug and alcohol usegoing to end?

Time to end this destruction from drugs and the other drug, alcohol.

Xanax and Loresapam are both anti-anxity drugs. It is easy when combining with alcohol to overdose, it is easy to forget when U last took these meds. Loresapam can make breathing shallow on it's own and make it easy to fall, it can also reduce your swallowing reflex. Unless extremely high levels are found, it was most likely some outcropping of some type of accidental overdose.

Xanax is NOT an antidepressant. It is a benzodiazepine used most commonly for anxiety. Commonly abuse, overused, and highly addicted.

Since it was Whitney's people who found her, it could be that they "cleaned" the room up of other drugs.
I can't say for sure because I was not there.
Whitney was clearly out of it before she died.
She probably had more than prescription drugs.
She may not have had illegal drugs the day she died because of the Grammy Awards party, but I'll bet this is a case of drug buildup in her body.
I am not a doctor, but Whitney Houston most likely died as a result of polypharmacy.
Too many drugs interacting in her system.
I don't know what caused her death, but the cause of the cause will be polypharmacy.

Xanax is NOT an antidepressant,It's a tranquilzer. Ibuprophen shouldn't be listed as a "Pain killer", it's an anti-inflammatory medication. People think Demerol, Morphine etc. when you use the phrase "Pain killer" I don't think how they identified the medications found at the hotel is fair. Call them what they really are, get someone with some pharmacology experience on the news team!

According to your story, "her family can now have Whitney transported back to Atlanta, where the singer will be laid to rest" so I would like to know when and where the service will be in Atlanta and who's body will be at the service in NJ on Saturday. You need to get your facts straight before you start telling people what is going to happen. Also, all the news is reporting her body was flown to NJ on a private jet owned by Tyler Perry. That is also incorrect. Perry apparently only chartered the jet from a charter company that flys the 'stars' all the time. Can't her family afford to pay for the plane?

Xanax is used to treat anxiety, not depression.


www.nlm.nih.gov
Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic disorder (sudden, unexpected attacks of extreme fear and worry about these attacks). Alprazolam is in a class of medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Alprazolam comes as a tablet, an extended-release ...

None of those medications are known to cause heart attack.
Ibuprofen is commonly known as Motrin, is used for headaches and hangovers, Xanax (also called Zanbars) would actually slow the heart down, its used for anxiety.

Proof that TMZ is not the most accurate source: she WILL NOT be laid to rest in Atlanta, and that was NEVER a part of the plan. Since her death, her mom made it CLEAR she would be buried in her hometown. WTF did ATLANTA come from? Trash news....
