What i want to know is why ANS was on Topamax, which is a seizure medication. And what caused the stomach, back and other pain that was so severe she had to take fricken methadone?


Does ANYONE else think that she is the perfect example of a wasted life? Just me? K... sigh


Topomax is often used for migrains. :)


Tessa: Oh really? That makes more sense I guess. And yes, a wasted life, for sure.


Yeah. I dunno how LONG she'd been taking it for course. Lots of anti seizure meds are used for different things. Neurontin for example is used for Diabetic Neuropathy but its main use is anit seizure. (I work for an insurance company on the Pharmacy side heh. Is it weird that I know these things... prolly. )


God. I need to learn to proof read my spelling. Geesh!


I have no clue on the pain meds. From what you were reporting in the live blog she used it for sleep. I've not heard of it being used for that but its not unheard of for Dr's to prescriber medications for treatment of medical issue that are considered "off label".


The ME said she took methadone for pain and the chloral hydrate for sleep problems. I wonder if all her meds were prescribed by one doctor? That's an awful lot of shit to be on, IMO. I mean was ANS really in need of ALL those different anti-anxiety meds?


It will be interesting to see what the inquest into Daniel's death yields. I mean why the frig did they find two different anti-depressants in his body. Is that normal to be on more than one? And the methadone? I still can't understand that.


Ahhh ok. (That'll teach me to skim heh) They probably weren't all from one prescriber. That's a very common problem with medications. Most people don't take their medical records from one physician to another or forget to list a med on their patient history and then bad drug interactions happen. You'd be amazed at the safeguards that insurance companies use to help doctors and patients avoid that stuff though. We have a whole SLEW of "error messages" to alert pharmacies to potential drug interactions and claims won't pay without special overrides. Ok... Imma shaddup about insurance now lol. I dun wanna bore you. (I can just SEE you sitting there with that glassy eyed expression =I= get with the huband starts talking about all kinds of technical crap for IP TV installation and computer networking heh)


Its not uncommon for more than one anti-depressant to be taken. Some handle anxiety better than meloncholy and vice versa. Depression is multifaceted and has a lot of symptoms and very rarely does one medication help with all the problems it can cause.

My dad actually used to work with Cyril Wecht, the Dr. that did the first Autopsy on Daniel. Every time I see his name linked to a high profile case I just kinda go... Woah!

I STILL think DKS had SOMETHING to do with all of this. He gives me the Heebie Jeebies... (I'd have to be on alla those meds and MORE to sleep with THAT dude!)


No, it's actually kind of interesting. And clearly you know a lot of relevant info about drugs. I have to put my son down for a nap. Will BBL


Heh I'll be here. The ins and outs of the insurance industry can be interesting but God... taking the phone calls is mind numbingly dull a lot of the time. Heh. I'll be around. This site keeps me sane when we're slow at work. (Well, this site and TWoP heh)


I was surprised that TrimSpa wasn't the smoking gun of all the drugs in her system.


Yanno, I don't know all that much about TrimSpa. Those weight loss drugs come and go and I just kinda... IGNORE them and all their advertising and info and stuff. None of em work without damaging your system even if they ARE FDA approved (See Fen Fen heh) I doubt they'll ever know all the things that contributed to her death. She was on so MUCH... STUFF. Yanno?

Is it wrong that I've always wanted to take her aside and just shake her till she gets some sense??? I feel that way about a LOT of the "Stars" these days, Lindsay Lohan, Brit-Brit... Its like they have no one guiding them and teaching them what being a PERSON is rather than a commidity or a brand. Meh.


"Methadone for pain" - ?? Not really buying that.

Dad Gone Mad

I have heard Topamax used as a "mood stabilizer."


Methadone is actually commonly used for pain especially when the patient has shown addictive tendancies on opiate drugs in their history.


Tessa, you're a great resource!

Amy H.

Amanda--very true. no mention of TrimSpa!


Remember in her stand-up special Kathy Griffin called TrimSpa "heroin"? I'm sad that she's gonna have to retire that joke now.


Its Kathy Griffin... are you SURE she'll retire it??? heheheh



I haven't heard of that but that doesn't mean anything. They use the anticonvusives for so many OTHER things its unreal.


What we suspected about her death is pretty much right on, so what I would like to get the ball rolling on is who's the daddy???, because we know it's Larry, they just need to confirm it. Like I said from the begining we should have gotten Maury on the paternity case, he solves them in 1 hour.


and if none of them are the daddy we can tune in next week to see the next 5 contestants... :)


BWAH!!! OMG... like that one woman who's tested like 16 guys now... ::looks around wide eyed:: Whut? It was on when I was home sick! Heheh


BTW- did anybody read Dr. Perper as Dr. Pepper?
Just me?


All the comments I was going to make re: the meds have already been made. Neurontin, Topamax, etc are often used for neuropathic pain. Methadone is also used as a pain medicine. I firmly believe she was 'doctor hopping' so not all docs would know about the different scripts. It's one way for people with addictive tendancies to get something that one doctor has already decided they won't give you anymore.

I'm glad that it's not out and out obvious that she was murdered. I still don't trust HKS as far as I could possibly throw him, but at least it's not a blatant 'I got away with it' thing.

I feel like a fog, not that it matters. I've pretty much been doing nothing , but eh. Today was a loss. I haven't gotten much done for a while.

Estou no último ano de Design na faculdade de belas artes de lisboa, mas, embora não tenha nada a ver com o curso que estou a tirar, tenho uma grande paixão pela biologia marinha, e já pensei várias vezes em tirar o curso de Biologia Marinha quando acabar o que estou a frequentar. Sei que vai ser dificil mas eu estou disposta a tentar. Por issso, se tiveream alguma informação (cursos existentes em portugal ou estrangeiro, etc) que me possa ser útil, agradecia que me enviassem para Muito Obrigada pela vossa atenção

[b]Calligraphy[/b] is one of the antique spheres of the human culture. It has been brushing up together with writing. It is characterized by the continuous striving for perfection. The art of handwriting both ancient and contemporary, its charm should be taken tremblingly, with reverence.

But alas… a typewriter, computer, communicator… The mankind is rapidly going away from the "handmade speech", that's is the words written on parchment, elm, paper or on turns. The scientific articles, novels, verses and love letters, all these we type on the computer.

But things are not too bad! Recently there was initiated a new project "International Calligraphic Exhibitoin". Its main goal is to form beautiful and healthy society through the art of calligraphy. The exhibition will be opened on Seprember 16th at the St.Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture n.a. I.E. Repin. One of the mottos of the project: [url=http://www.calligraphy.mvk.ru/en/]Calligraphy[/url] is the art of excellence.

The exhibition will include the works of the well-known [url=http://www.calligraphy.mvk.ru/en/?idx=28]calligraphers[/url] from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine. To clearly understand the generality of calligraphy there will be organized a special exposition of the calligraphic schools of Europe, Baltic states, USA, Israel, China, Japan, Cyria and UAE.

The framework of the project will also include the museum exposition displaying the ancient manuscripts of different centuries. Children and their parents, and all the comers will take pleasure of the calligraphic lessons and interesting lectures, while the professionals will take the opportunity to brush up their skills at the master-classes.

[b]On May 14th at 2 pm [/b] there will be organized the presentation of the International Calligraphic Exhibition at Crocus Expo. At the presentation one will see a part of the master-pieces of [url=http://www.calligraphy.mvk.ru/en/?idx=8]the calligraphic gallery[/url], which at a quick pace is added by new works and authors.

[b]P.S.:[/b] I would add for myself: undoubtedly, they do the right deal. Russia has always been living with fervor. The least I can do for the "International Calligraphic Exhibition", in which I trust and believe it is right and necessary is to present this beautiful art to the wide audience, to you, dear forum participants. I would be grateful if the art of calligraphy awaken interest and a drop of enthusiasm.
