Pharmacy records prove she was prescribed a lethal amount.
New information about Brittany Murphy‘s addiction to prescription medication has come to light in a new report from TMZ. According to the site, Brittany received at least 200 pills per month between Jan. 2008 and Aug. 2009 — and some months she even received up to 400! Pharmacy documents reveal that she was being regularly prescribed Vicodin, anti-anxiety pills, and a Vicodin/ibuprofen combination pill, and would frequently double her prescription.
Using an alias, “Lola Manilow Murphy,” she got her pills from Eddie’s Pharmacy in Los Angeles, but was cut off four months before her tragic death. When reached for a comment, the pharmacy owner told the site, “We thought there was going to be an accident there.”
TMZ also reports that every prescription for Brittany was written out by Dr. Richard Kroop and that investigators spoke to the doctor March 19 for questioning.
