This is what killed the amazing artist.

New reports suggest Prince was taking high levels of the painkiller Percocet, which is believed to have led to him overdosing on his private jet five days before he died. The Star-Tribune reported Prince was given a shot of the opioid antidote Narcan by first responders on the tarmac. Prince’s sister Lorna Nelson and brother Duane Nelson reported Prince not only abused the painkiller Percocet, but cocaine as well.

“Doctor D” claims Prince would spend up to $40,000 on six month supplies of highly addictive Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches.

“Doctor D” claims he first met Prince in 1984 while he was filming the movie Purple Rain and he was already majorly addicted to opiates.

“Doctor D” claims Prince needed anti-anxiety drugs because he was so nervous — he could be nervous in a room with just five people in it. [2]

Benzodiazepines are the most common class of anti-anxiety drugs. [3] They include:

  • Xanax (alprazolam)
  • Klonopin (clonazepam)
  • Valium (diazepam)
  • Ativan (lorazepam)

Many recommend Medical Cannabis as a substitute for anxiety and pain issues. Some 24 states have legalized the medical use of marijuana, Pennsylvania being the latest, and if one is lucky to live in a state like New Mexico, they can even apply online at New Mexico Brief Relief to find out if they qualify.
