Multiple prescription drugs were found in Brittany’s system at the time of her death.

The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office released actress Brittany Murphy’s full autopsy report Feb. 25 and the new information reveals her death was an accident and her system was full of prescription drugs. gave a breakdown of what drugs were listed in Brittany’s autopsy report: Propranolol, Hydrocodone, Phenazopyridine, Fluoxetine, Dextromethorphan, Chlorpheniramine were in her stomach and while there were methamphetamines in her urine and in her blood/heart.

Brittany, 32, was known to suffer from severe anemia and other conditions. She had been treated by doctors for these medical issues, but the last time she went to the doctor was months before her death. When Brittany was first found dead in her LA home on Dec. 20 several pill bottles and medications were found all over the house under her husband Simon Monjack’s name, her mother Sharon Murphy, along with Brittany’s own prescriptions.

According to the new report no illegal drugs were found in her system. “The possible adverse elevated levels of these medications can not be discounted, especially in her weakened state. Therefore the manner of death is accident.”

The LA County Coroner issued a preliminary autopsy report Feb. 4 Brittany Murphy’s stating Brittany’s death was “accidental caused by community acquired pneumonia,” iron deficiency anemia, and “multiple drug intoxication.” But the big thing to point out is the coroner is saying Brittany’s condition prior to her death was ‘treatable.’

Brittany was best known for her roles in films like Clueless, Uptown Girls, Just Married, and Girl Interrupted.
