The New York City medical examiner’s office released the official cause of death today.
Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazapam, alprazolam, and doxylamine.
We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications.
The drugs are the generic names for the OxyContin painkiller, the anti-anxiety drug Valium, Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug, and the sleep aids Restoril and Unisom. Hydrocodone is another name for ibuprofen.
Be careful out there, kids!!
