So after all the rumors  
about Heath Ledger returning to a drug addictive lifestyle, the official report indicates that in his desperation to finally get some sleep, he took his prescription drugs all together in a lethal combination. Anxiety meds, sleep meds, and pain meds together can really suppress your breathing center. A lot of people don't understand that drugs are not safe just because they are prescribed--that when combined they can have effects you didn't intend.

But then, after a long period of insomnia, who is thinking clearly?

Prescription is not synonymous with harmless.

Then, neither is insomnia.

It just makes me think he was needing help that he just was not getting. Even money and fame cannot buy everything you need.

There is a lesson in there somewhere.

Re: :(
I bet more than one doc told him he needed to address his work stress, apparently playing the Joker had really done a number on his head and caused insomnia over a long period of time, then he went straight into another complicated role in London.

I hope that this highlights the dangers of these drugs and why one needs to inform docs of everything one is taking.
