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 (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.

Sad but no surprise. She destroyed her voice years ago. The few concerts she actually showed up for were so bad, wasted, couldn't remember the words she was booed and people left wanting their money back.


She destroyed her voice and she knew it. Her voice was not coming back.

She committed suicide because She knew She lost Her voice. ONLY MY OPINION.

The "right" dose of Xanax combined with alcohol is basically suicide. Even though the doctor would have warned her and it's stated right on the bottle, common sense should have prevailed but this suicide will be ruled "accidental" as others are.

It's reported she was doing handstands near the pool at that "party", fighting with someone ("hands were raised"), left with "something running down her leg", and much more. Out of control.

Out of all the tragedies that have happened over the last few years this one hurts. Such a loss to music of yesterday.

@jay...It's also my opinion as well. She destroyed her voice and was not going to make a comeback. Her career was basically over. The few attempts were beyond horrible, booed, fans wanting their money back.

Going to concerts wasted, trying to get on stage, grabbing the mic and making a complete fool of herself. Hell she was wasted Friday night. Suicide or accidental who knows.

RECOVERING RON    

OK, that tears it for me! I am a recovering addict. Clean for 23 years now. Since when are the recovery rules different for celbs!? After rehab, Whitney should have focused on staying clean and being a good full mom. An attempted "comeback" should have been far from her mind. I blame her, her handlers (they should have insisted she just stay home and focus), the doctors (how do they prescibe all these meds to and addict? That's like putting a monkey in charge of bananas.), and the public. (we should have been happy with her past and not how she will entertain us in the future.) Just like an pro ball player an entertainer need to know when it's time to walk away. Enough is enough! These are senseless, preventable deaths

Sheesh! You guys need to settle down and stop speculating. It really doesn't matter now does it? She's gone and has left behind grief stricken family members. Her child is broken hearted and devastated. Last week you were all in your glory "speculating" that she came out of a club with "blood" on her legs! WTF people leave her rest in peace now!

Gotta love Canada    

I am sitting here laughing at how all you Amercians have the answers. It is beyond hilarious. Some of you reply as if you were a great friend of Whitneys. Alot of weirdos on this site! Hmmm, I bet you if the question was 'where on a map would you find Italy or China or even Canada' you all would be lost. Education is the key to conquering your ignorance.
