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.

The medical examiner never said anything about her heart. Why are you making up reasons why she died?

What does Michael Jackson and Demerol have to do with this story?

Xanax isn't used for Anti Depression. It's used to treat people with panic attacks etc.

Xanax is so not an anti-depressant. It is a CNS depressant. It is a benzodiazepine and is used to depress the central nervous system (used e.g. to depress (lower) anxiety symptoms). Some don't seem to get it...

I feel so bad for whitney and her family. I know she wanted to come back. But, she is out of her pain now. She doesn't have to hear of or read gossip magazines talking about her past drug history. Her anxieties are over. I have taken xanax and other anxiety medications in the past. Those alone can make you drowsy. She shouldn't have taken a bath.
But, when its your time to die, you will die. Doesn't matter who you are. You can't escape death in this lifetime.

Love you whitney.

Ibuprofen is not a pain killer,it is an nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drug,more commonly known as NSAID.It is sold over the counter,but higher doses are prescribed by a doctor.You can not get "high" off of them,no matter how many yoiu take,you will only get a bleeding ulcer from taking too many.

Call it a pain reliever if you want, but to call it a pain killer makes it sounds like Whitney was taking opiates.

Didn't we all see this train wreck happen the same as Winehouse and MJ. Hollywood and the music industry are full of addicts (one thing or another). I just feel sorry for her poor daughter.

If Xanax is an antidepressant, then Harvey Levin is Chinese.
Xanax, a benzodiazepine, is a powerful drug with CNS depressant (ie sedative) actions and is most commonly used in cases of anxiety.
