By onemoretime     Feb 13, 2007 in Entertainment
The final report from General Levert's autopsy finds that his death was caused by a fatal combination of several prescription and over-the-counter drug.
It is certain that little comfort will come to the family and friends of R&B singer Gerald Levert at finally knowing the actual cause of his death.
Geauga County Coroner Kevin Chartrand received the coroner's report on Thursday which revealed that the drugs in his blood stream included the narcotic pain relievers Vicodin, Percocet and Darvocet, along with anxiety medication Xanax and two over-the-counter antihistamines. Acute Intoxication is the official cause of death which has been ruled an accident. The report also revealed that Levert had pneumonia.
A family spokeman, Andy Gibson, said that Levert was taking pain medication because of chronic shoulder pain as well as for surgery in 2005 to repair a severed Achilles tendon and Xanax for anxiety attacks .
Levert, 40 at the time of his death, is know for being a great singer in his own right and also the son to O'Jay's singer Eddie Levert.
I usually don't include my own opinions in the articles I submit, however I feel I must this time because of the disturbing similarity to Anna Nicole Smith and Daniel Smith's death amounst talk of their use of various medications. Very disturbing is the fact that anxiety and pain medication seems to complicate peoples health when combine even with some over-the-counter medication.
