Anna Nicole Smith's drug order made public
The word is out. There no longer seems to be a question as to what drugs the late Playboy covergirl Anna Nicole Smith was taking before her death.
Fox 411 says they have obtained a fax written sent by Khristine Eroshevich, Smith’s personal psychiatrist and the woman who since her death claims to be her best friend.
It’s a request for a laundry list of drugs that Eroshevich wanted sent to the Bahamas by courier for “M. Chase,” the pseudonym Smith used to obtain drugs.
The list is potentially very harmful. It includes:
four bottles of 2 mg Dilaudid;
2 milliliter bottles of Lorazepam (Ativan);
two bottles of 350 mg Soma, a total of 180 tablets;
one bottle each of 30 mg Dalmane and 400 mg Prexige, a British drug;
one bottle of methadone, 300 5mg tablets.
All of these are classified as painkillers.
Eroshevich was evidently by Anna Nicole's side during her pregnancy, and she has also been speaking exclusively with "Entertainment Tonight" in support of Smith's most recent companion Howard K. Stern.
Eroshevich sent the fax on Sept. 15, 2006, a week after the baby was born and five days after Daniel’s death.
At first she sent it from the Bahamas to Sandeep Kapoor, the Los Angeles physician who treated Smith under the pseudonym “Michelle Chase.”
When Kapoor refused to fill the prescriptions, sources say, Eroshevich sent the request directly to Key Pharmacy in North Hollywood, Calif. It was also refused there.
The doctor wrote the fax in her own hand and added a note at the bottom: “You have my local number here. Please call if half of the amounts can be prepared, I’ll have someone take them to a courier to bring to me and he can [illegible] Fedex the rest, except for the Intensol, which has to be on ice.”
She signed it “Kris,” even though it seemed from the fax that she didn’t actually know Kapoor.
Fox showed the list to a pharmacist who said the dosages were "much higher than usual."
“That’s 12 times the amount of Dalmane. All together, these drugs potentially will kill you. I would have refused to fill the order.”
The directions for Prexige read: “Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Ask your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking Prexige in this case. It is not known if lumiracoxib, the active ingredient of Prexige, passes into the breast milk and could affect your baby.”
In a brief conversation last night with Fox 411, the psychiatrist, Eroshevich, acknowledged the existence of the fax, but declined to comment citing "patient confidentiality."
Stern and Anna Nicole herself both denied that the baby, Dannielynn, was born addicted to any drugs. Based on this information, that is VERY hard to believe.
It looks like Howard K. Stern won't be the only one who could potentially go down as a result of Anna Nicole's death.
