    So they were all downers. I am going to go with the theory someone mentioned that he was tweaked out of his mind/coked up and wanted to come down, so he took a molotov cocktail of Rx drugs, thinking it'd let him sleep and yet it had a fatal reaction.

    Hydrocodone is the generic name for Vicodin. Very addictive.

    Oxycodone is generic name for percocet. Not Oxycontin..Hydrocodone is the generic name for Vicodin.

    Holy shit!

    That is alot of bad drugs to mix together~!!!!

    Still sad though.

    But I'm not going to make Heath out to be this amazing wonderful legendary actor...because he wasn't. He was good...but not great.

    oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine

    Oxycodone/Percocet/Roxicet is a narcotic. Hydrocodone/Vicodin/Lortab is also a narcotic. Diazepam/Valium is a benzodiazepine used for anxiety. Temazepam is also a bezo as is Alprazolam/Xanax. Never heard of the last one.

    OxyContin/MS Contin is a long acting version of Oxycodone/Percocet/Roxicet. There is a big distinction between the two.


    Three bezos and two narcotics in an average person's system would be fatal. Users/abusers can often handle more than the average but this would still be a huge hit.

    I feel horrible for the guy, I really do. Most likely he kept taking pills throughout the night in a desperate attempt to sleep, finally took too much and conked out. That, coupled with a respiratory problem, led to his death.

    6 types of drugs? That's crazy. What a dodgy mixture. I cant imagine a doctor prescribing all those in one go...

    Accidental, so his family gets the insurance $$$

    If it were any one of us, that verdict would have been anything but accidental.

    There is nothing to indicate respiratory problems contributed at all. Just his choice to mix and take too many drugs.

    ^^ Agreed. Usually pneumonia would be released as a cause of death if it contributed. Most likely his repiratory problems came when he took enough benzos to kill a horse (one presumes).

    I still think it's *possible* that Heath committed suicide though. He seemed like a smart guy. Any person with sense knows that it is very dangerous to mix painkillers and sleeping meds, especially more than one kind of each. If he had taken a bunch of one drug in particular to commit suicide, that would've been obvious. But by taking several kinds at once, it blurs the "intentional" into "accidental". Maybe he wanted to die but he didn't want the stigma of suicide for his survivors.

    (I had put this in the other thread too)

    Well.. that's that.

    I liked him, but I do agree that this whole thing has made him into some kind of martyr.
