The late Brittany Murphy, who passed away in December, received no fewer than 200 pills a month from January 2008-August 2009, and sometimes as many as 400.
The actress used an alias, Lola Manilow Murphy, at Eddie’s Pharmacy in L.A. for nearly two years before the pharmacy finally cut her off four months before she died.
Pharmacy records show Murphy got regular prescriptions for hydrocodone (Vicodin), clonazepam and Klonopin (anxiety), and Vicoprofen (a Vicodin/ibuprofen combo).
What’s more, she doubled up on some prescriptions certain months.

For example, during one month in particular, Murphy was prescribed 200 hydrocodone and 100 clonazepam; another month it was 300 Vicoprofen and 100 Klonopin.
All the prescriptions were prescribed by Dr. Richard Kroop. One of many doctors under investigation in the case, he was paid a visit by authorities Friday afternoon.
The owner of Eddie’s Pharmacy told TMZ he cut Brittany and her family off months before her death because, “We thought there was going to be an accident there.”
Turns out he had his finger on the pulse there. Much like when THG told you in May 2007 that Simon Monjack was a shady character. Sometimes you just nail it.
