Philip Seymour Hoffman

Apartment Littered with Rx Pills

Besides the heroin ... cops found a laundry list of prescription meds in Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment ... including pills to treat addiction, ADHD, and anxiety.

According to law enforcement sources ... investigators found methocarbamol (muscle relaxer), hydroxyzine (anti-anxiety), Vyvanse (ADHD), and buprenorphine to treat addiction ... and clonidine hydrochloride (blood pressure).

It's unclear at this point if Hoffman had prescriptions for any of the drugs.  

Of course the pills were just a small part of the stash cops found. As we've reported ... there were 50 bags of heroin as well as used and unused hypodermic needles.

Harvey,
They use Clonidine to treat WITHDRAWL symptoms. It is a blood pressure medication, but used also for withdrawl symptoms.

Yes people die everyday from this. How about using his death as a lesson that money and fame doesn't kill an addiction. You have to want sobriety so badly. Even then ten years later you can fall off the wagon. Yea lets move on forget this chastise the guy. When addiction hits home for you whether it be a family member friend or maybe even yourself you may show empathy. And I promise it will affect everyone in a personal way.

Clonidine is more commonly used by addicts to ease withdrawal symptoms. It helps with sweating, RLS and can induce sleep.

Enough with this already! Dude chose drugs over his own kids! No sympathy from me for him. Sympathy goes to those he left.

Okay, he has three kids and other loved ones I'm guessing. He shouldn't have been taking drugs. But the guy must have been in a lot of pain, for years. So I can't judge.

THE SADDEST THING is that all those prescriptions are used for getting sober from Heroin. I just helped a friend get off of it and we used all those. There was probably a bunch of Imodium AD around too. Muscle relaxers are super important after 3 days off of H for restless legs. The clonodine is a MUST for making sure your heart doesn't beat out of your chest. sad. sad. sad.
