Notes from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office have been obtained by TMZ and the website reports that Brittany Murphy had been suffering from “shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain” for a little over a week before her death.
According to the documents, at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, the actress went into the bathroom and closed the door. It was half an hour later that her mother looked to see if Brittany was OK and “discovered the decedent lying on the floor unresponsive.” At that point, Sharon Murphy called 911 and Brittany’s husband, Simon Monjack, attempted to revive her.
Paramedics arrived and at that point, Murphy showed no “signs of life” and they noted numerous prescription drugs on the nightstand in the master bedroom made out to Brittany, her mother and Monjack. The medications include several anti-anxiety medications, pain relievers, anti-seizure medications, anti-inflammatory, an anti-depressant, one to combat hypertension to prevent heart attacks and a drug to treat Diabetic symptoms, but can also be used to treat bipolar disorder.
These are Topama, Methylprednisolone, Fluoxetine, Klonopin, Carbamazepine, Ativan, Vicoprofen, Propranolol and the notes added that Brittany had a history of hypoglycemia.
