Whitney Houston

Final Doctor Visits

For Teeth Whitening, Sore Throat

Whitney Houston
made three visits to the doctor in the week prior to her death, but the trips had NO illicit purpose -- she had a sore throat and got her teeth whitened.

Both family and law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Whitney was recording the title track to "Sparkle" and got a sore throat ... so she went to a doctor to get it checked out. We're told the doctor gave Whitney an Rx for Amoxicillin.   

Whitney was also scheduled to film a commercial for her sister-in-law's candle line, so she went to a dentist twice to get her teeth whitened and cleaned.

And law enforcement sources have reiterated to TMZ ... Whitney was NOT doctor shopping for prescriptions and they believe none of the doctors crossed the line in their treatment of her.

As we first reported, Beverly Hills cops retrieved 6 medication bottles in Whitney's room, including Xanax and Amoxicillin. She also had Midol and ibuprofen.

And as we reported, it is increasingly looking like Whitney mixed Xanax and alcohol before getting in the tub, and that she may have died from a reaction to the drugs ... not from drowning.

Do you have the same illiterate writers as Perez Hilton? Has any gossip writer ever seen a High School diploma?

"about an hour ago." That is really amazing her Father wrote about all that. I take it that he and Cissy were divorced or not together? I didn't know that, very amazing the insight Whitney's Dad must have had into his daughters problems. Also this story is really not big time news. I think everyone assumes the mix of alcohol and zanax caused her death. Her voice was always raspy from all the crack she smoked. It was said last night she was going back again for rehab when the grammy's were over. I think she was using again totally acting irrational at the hotel etc.etc. Unless you are running a fever it is difficult to get an antibiotic for a sore throat. Antibiotics are only effective combatting bacteria, but not a viral infection. Unless they just gave it to her in case she needed it---my dr. does that sometimes.

To many comments about "soar." get over it allreaady. didn't you ever make a typo error?? Who hasn't??

Teeth whitening and sore throat. Nancy Grace will be so put out that Whitney wasn't consorting with unscruplous rentaDocs. She will be oiling her broomstick as we speak as she ventures to the studio for yet another episode of "lets trash Whitney Houston some more."

You see.. your judgemental b*stards! She didnt die of a drug overdose. She drank yes.. but she was sober as far as drugs. Everyone drinks and pops pills these days.. at least her pills were for legitimate things. All American ****ing kids & teens are addicted to adderoll!!

I'll ask a dumb questions since TMZ is being ever so careful about not pointing any fingers at doctors . . . can you tell me how a recovering addict gets percriptions for Xanax? Valium? Am I missing something and then her entourage stands mindfully by while she binges on alcohol? I know, dumb me asking such silly questions.

Jeez people, let the soar/sore thing go. I am sure T M Z knows the difference between the two, but typos are easy to make if you are typing and submitting fast and not fully concentrating. Everyone does it. It is not all that big of a deal. It's a gossip site, not the New York Times or Wall Street Journal.

More like crack stain removal and chemically parched throat. she was a singing sensation that ended up being crackhead. why is the media trying to act like she was the victim? Anybody remember her on "being Bobby Brown"? She was wasted most of the time they showed her, whitney's self inflicted drug addiction killed her.
