Whitney Houston

Final Doctor Visits

For Teeth Whitening, Sore Throat

2/17/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

All these comments about whitney and crack or illegal drugs. Am i missing something. There were no signs of crack or any other illegal drugs in her room or in her bloodstream, at the time of her death.

Let us focussing on her positives instead of highlighting everything she ever did wrong. So what is she was an addict.....does that make her any less human or does that mean she was garbage? Please!!!! Well ..... She did try to do something about it....we all know ABOUT IT. So WHAT???? Why are people idiots just because their high regard of her didn't change when she was going through addiction?? Everybody has trouble in their life in some way,shape or form, doesn't mean that that is the way she should be remembered. R.I.P. Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)

Wait a minute...she had her teeth whitened? Hey now, most teeth white stuff uses a derivative of carbocaine which some people, like me, cannot tolerate. It can cause breathing issues and increased heart rate. If she had carbocaine in her system PLUS xanax and some bubbly...we're talking massive drug interaction all swirled together in a nice, hot bath.

On another website they were running a story about how Whitney Houston was just recently refused a plastic surgery procedure (facelift) due to the fact that she failed her medical. It's highly unusual for a surgeon to refuse to operate, perhaps she had a problem with her heart and that's what she died from?

I find it remotely disgusting when others make a mockery of the beautiful & talented Whitney Houston. Let's remember only the good things she gave to her fans...I will miss you Whitney...R.I.P. There will never be another great singer like her...

Now, I want to say. No matter what people say "druggies" or not. As long as Whitney was with Bobby she didn't die while she was with him. That was over 15 years being together. He as far as the east is from west when her end came.

Okay, how is it that her doctors aren't being arrested and charged as with Michael Jackson death?
