Heath Ledger Dies of Accidental Rx OD

Posted Oct 28 2008 9:56pm

No surprises, here, but Heath Ledger’s death was ruled an accidental overdue. The medical examiner noted that Ledger’s system contained: OxyContin, Valium, Xanax and some sleeping pills.

According to media reports, it seems the Ledger had seen different doctors in both the U.S. and Europe to obtain all of the various prescriptions.

My question is – what doctor in the world would ever prescribe OxyContin or hydrocodone for insomnia? Supposedly, the only ill afflicting Ledger was that of extreme insomnia due to the rigors of his filming schedule.
