Michael Jackson popped 55 pills a day
LONDON – Late Michael Jackson had been popping a total of 55 different pills everyday in his final six months, according to reports.
The news came in line with the announcement that results of drug tests on the ‘Thriller’ singer’s brain and blood will be delayed further.
The decision was made after 28 prescription medicines were found at his rented mansion in LA, reports the Daily Star.
Drug Enforcement Agency officers have found dozens of bottles, boxes and bags of pills while searching the property in Holmby Hills where Jackson died.
Among other drugs they seized the highly dangerous surgical anaesthetic Propofol, which is legally available only to hospital patients and is administered via intravenous injection.
Propofol comes under the list of drugs found under the trade name Diprivan.
According to experts, without proper monitoring, the drug could lead to cardiac arrest -which ultimately caused Jackson’s death.
One LA-based doctor described the astonishing cache of drugs as a “guaranteed cocktail of death”.
It included the potent painkillers Demerol and OxyContin. (ANI)
