dont be inconsiderate about this just because it says substance abuse. that doesnt necessarily mean the same thing as something like cocaine. they were prescription drugs, so perhaps he had a prescription to be taking them and its just as they said:accidental. dont jump to conclusions based off of a murky and less than lengthy worded release.

Interesting... big words. Was it because of the combination of the drugs, or because he took too much?

"acute combined effects" sounds like an interaction between the drugs, rather than an overdose.
i don't know his personal history, but the last two sound like they could have actually been prescribed to him for some panic disorder. no idea about the opiates though.

I believe they said it wasn't on purpose, like he didn't OD on heroin or anything.

It's never on "purpose" Just because it's not a illegal drug, doesn't mean he didn't OD. He abused narcotics prescribed to him. So it may very well in fact be the same as an OD on heroin.

so what does this mean in layman's terms? antidepressants would make sense, but was he suffering from seizures/panic disorder as well.

this is still not enough to make a conclusive, this is how/why he died statement, IMO

from what I've heard about the seizure/panic disorder drug....it's the same pill just treats two seperate symptoms. kind of like zyban/wellbutrin. it's an anti-depressant that also has you quit smoking(1 pill 2 effects).

so most likely he was suffering from an anxiety/panic disorder and thats why he would be prescribed those medications. probably not seizures(sense they probably use strobes and lights...which would def not be good for him).

Well, if you're depressed and have panic attacks, neither of those drugs would probably be uncommon. I'm curious what the opiate was.

Me too. My dad is on both of those kinds of medication. People keep overlooking the part where it says opiate, they think that he ODed on his prescription drugs but the article doesn't say that at all.

It sounds like it was just a reaction to something. Whatever the opiate was likely had a bad interaction with the prescriptions he was taking.
