It’s been several weeks since the sudden death of movie star Heath Ledger, but today the NYC medical examiner’s office released details on the determined cause of death:
“Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine,” said an announcement released Wednesday morning by office spokesperson Ellen Borakove.
Oxycodone is a pain medication, hydrocodone is a cough suppressant, diazepam is commonly called Valium, temazepam treats anxiety or sleeplessness, alprazolam is known as Xanax, and doxylamine is a sedating antihistamine.
Good gravy. Did the man swallow a Walgreen’s? This really pisses me off. What was he thinking taking all of those pills together? You can look forward to the “doctor” who prescribed this laundry list of medicine to get slammed and maybe even lose his license. What the heck was he doing with Oxycodone? I’ve only ever gotten a prescription for that once and that was after having swelling of the brain and bleeding from the eyes from watching Kirsten Dunst in Spider-man 3.
