Many Drugs Found in Brittany Murphy's System

by at . Comments

The list of drugs in Brittany Murphy's system when she died have been released by the L.A. County Coroner's office today, and it's not a pretty picture.

According to the report, "Multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine."

"L-methamphetamine was also present."

The report says, "It should be noted that the pattern of use of these medications suggest treatment of symptoms of a cold or other respiratory infection."

"Acetaminophen and hydrocodone are components of Vicodin. Chlorpheniramine is considered an active ingredient in some over-the-counter medications."

The late Brittany Murphy with Simon Monjack, who she wed in 2007.

"L-methamphetamine is a component of some inhalers."

The Coroner believes that Brittany had pneumonia and tried self-medicating with prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs ... and it ultimately proved fatal.

The report notes that "Possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels from these medications cannot be discounted, especially in a weakened state."

"Therefore the manner of death is Accident."

Simon Monjack, you're in the clear. Except for trying to bilk people through the fake foundation you set up in Brittany's name. That was real shady, man.


I think Simon kept her doped up for years.
He's a fraud and I won't be surprised if he's found guilty of murder. If she was so addicted, why didn't he take her to rehab? And if she had a heart murmur, then why did she have plastic surgery for her breasts?


Bullcaca. She died of an overdose of Vicodin. There were three times as many pills missing than there should've been. Her stomach pain was from the overdose of Vicodin. Someone may have crushed them and put them in her food or drink. She was poisoned. A stupid little voice over job isn't going to cause depression. It's like a stocking stuffer, not the big gift. Her acting work was the real work she valued. Based on the sleazy attempt to profit form a bogus charity, it looks like money is the motive. Any caring family member would have known she was full of a drug cocktail and any severe reaction to the medication would cause someone to take the person to the hospital. Instead those around her tried to wash off the vomit after dragging her into the shower. Murder is still suspected.


Bless her. It's easy to forget just how powerful some over the counter drugs are. It's concerning that she was this poorly but didn't seek medical attention though.
