Brittany Murphy was sick prior to her death Sunday morning; lots of prescription meds found at the home...

Lovely photo.

It's being reported that Brittany Murphy was not feeling well early this morning. We're also hearing reports that her husband, Simon Monjack did not want an autopsy performed by the Los Angeles Coroner. I find that odd. Wouldn't you think he'd want to know what caused his young wife's death? I hate to say it's a bit of a red flag, but I just reallly think it's a very strange thing to request. I doubt that the authorities will honor his weird request, given the fact that there is now an "investigation" into Brittany's death.
via and ONTD:

We're told Murphy was taking prescription meds for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. We're told Murphy began vomiting early Sunday morning and told family members she was feeling very ill.

Sources say various prescriptions were found in the home -- written for Brittany Murphy, husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany's mom. One source says, "There were a lot ... a lot of prescriptions in the house."

Law enforcement sources tell us Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and somehow ended up in the shower ... there was, we're told, a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area.

We're also told authorities did not find illegal drugs in the house, but Murphy was definitely taking various prescription meds.

Sources say her condition and the meds could have triggered a heart attack, but it's too early to know. An autopsy will be performed Monday or Tuesday. We reported earlier Monjack did not want an autopsy but ultimately it's the Coroner's call.

As we first reported, Brittany Murphy's mother told paramedics her daughter suffered from diabetes. We're told it was type 2 diabetes and people involved in the case doubt her condition caused her death."

I'm very curious to find out the types of meds Brittany was taking...of all sorts. This really is a sad Hollywood story. It's a sad story no matter what, actually.

The thing is, and if this story is completely true, it teaches a lesson to all of us. If you're sick, see a doctor. Now when that nurse wants to know what you're *currently* taking, she's not asking because he/she wants to annoy you. It's because certain drugs have bad reactions/interactions with others. I have to read labels and KNOW what I can and cannot take, there's an entire LIST of drugs that can kill me because get this, I had gastric bypass surgery and they're known as "pouch burners". What's that mean? I take them, they burn my pouch & make a perforated ulcer to my main system & I can bleed out and die. Nice, huh? So with that, know that no matter how sick you are or what a doctor prescribes, make sure it does not INTERACT badly with other meds or vitamins or supplements you're taking & when you're at the pharmacy window, ask questions if you need to & make sure that the med in the bag is the one you should be taking.
