In the wake of Whitney Houston's death, Dr. David Samadi discusses our nation's epidemic with prescription drug abuse. Though toxicology reports are not yet available, the press indicates that Xanax and Valium, antibiotics, alcohol, and other prescription drugs were in Houston's room at the time of her death. Prostate cancer expert, Dr. Samadi, shares that opioid prescriptions have more than doubled in the U.S. and he believes that doctors need to exercise more caution when issuing these prescriptions. He adds that "doctor shopping" and celebrity influence may be factors, but suggests that a medical panel of doctors might be a better way to approach evaluating patient history and medical need in such cases. Patients often assume the drugs are safe because they have a prescription, but drug combinations, alcohol consumption, and overdose can severely impact patient health.
