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.

So what if not many pills were in the bottles? I'm down to the last two BP pills in my Rx bottle. That doesn't mean I just overdosed on them.

So sad. Something has to be done about doctors who prescribe this stuff. I've lost two members of my family to this sort of thing. As long as you can put up the money some doctors will prescribe you anything.

SEE....TMZ IS JUST SPECULATING! NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE WHAT HAPPENED UNTIL THE AUTOPSY REPORT IS RELEASED! LET'S NOT CRUCIFY THIS WOMAN IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION UNTIL WE TRULY KNOW WHAT HAPPENED! PERSONALLY, I AM STUNNED BECAUSE SHE HAD A TALENT LIKE NON OTHER AND SHE TRULY WANTED TO GET BETTER OR SHE PUBLICLY WOULDN'T HAVE TALKED ABOUT HER STUGGLES! MJ ON THE OTHER HAND, DID NOT THINK HE HAD A PROBLEM BUT WHITNEY ACKNOWLEDGED SHE DID! THE 1ST STEP IN RECOVERY IS TO ADMIT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM AND THAT SHE DID! I THINK SHE DIED OF CARDIAC ARREST AND NOT A DRUG INDUCED COMA OR OVER DOSE. ERGO SHE WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PARTY, SHE HAD A NEW MOVING COMING OUT, AND SHE WAS IN A BID TO BE AN X-FACTOR MENTOR...SHE WAS ON HER WAY TO A COME BACK! I LOVED AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE WHITNEY....SHE WAS TRULY AN ANGEL AND WHENEVER SHE SANG YOU FELT A PART OF GOD IN HER VOICE! RIP WHITNEY YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!

SERIOUSLY TMZ? "We're told the L.A. Coroner's Office has removed the hold on Whitey's body". Typos like that are totally unacceptable.

Would have put money(and still am) this was benzodiazepine related. Xanax is a useful drug if taken properly but problem is, often its not taken properly. There's a reason they put that little sticker on the bottle that you don't take it with alcohol. Its long acting, ***ulative in the system & overdose is such a risk because of this. Need more public info put out about how dangerous this drug can be. Too soon to say til the tox report comes back but if I were a betting woman.....

XANAX is NOT an antidepressant it's highly addictive benzodiazepine that can be lethal when mixed with alcohol.

They could be doing a story about a celebrity buying a ham sandwich and TMZ would find a way to throw Michael Jacksons name into it for hits.LOL

MJ has been dead well over two years..He died from a fatal dose given by his own doctor., not from self medicating...The doctor was found guilty in a court of law.
Every aspect of Michael Jacksons life has been scrutinized for years and years..Why not give him a day off..jeez

As a handwriting expert I wanted to see how her handwriting compared to others stars that died too young. I put my findings in a short report on Amazon Kindle (99c). Whitney's writing had a specific quality that Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin - and others- had. I wasn't surprised. Check it out. http://www.amazon.com/Whitney-Houston-Handwriting-Report-ebook/dp/B0078GA4LY/
