FDA is about to lay the smack down! by idontknowmuch

TMZ is reporting that the FDA is investigating at least two doctors who prescribed medications to Heath Ledger. Right after his death, the NYPD subpoenaed several documents to try and determine if the prescribed medications he had were prescribed in a medically-correct prescribable fashion. That is if they were prescribed rightly prescribably. If you remember correctly, there were varying reports on pill bottles being strewn about Heath’s apartment and pills being found around his body.

Unfortunately, we know that those reports shouldn’t have varied at all. This guy got some doctors to prescribe him a shit load of medication and he decided to take “legal doses” of each one, at the same time. I get scared when I take a multi-vitamin and an ibuprofen in the morning after a long night of binge drinking. Heath decided to rid his demons by reading each bottle, taking the exact dosage of each, and really expected that nothing bad would happen to him? Its unfortunate because I respect him as an actor and he had a young girl that will never fully know her father now. Jack Nicholson reportedly told Heath about the kind of demons he had to deal with when he played the part back in the 90’s. And judging by how spot-on Heath played the character in the much darker “The Dark Knight”, I’d say the reason he couldn’t sleep had something to do with that role.

They filmed parts of the movie here in Chicago and on several occasions, people reported Heath riding his skateboard with full costume and makeup on, flying down the streets of the Loop and scaring the shit out of people. Could you imagine what that would look like to some sweet administrative assistant on her way to lunch? Needless to say I can’t wait to see the movie.
