Anna Nicole Smith had pain drug prescriptions while pregnant
TMZ has evidence that Anna Nicole Smith obtained (possibly illegally) and filled prescriptions for methadone and Demerol. TMZ has copies of air bills for packages she received on August 8th: one contained 30 pills of Demerol, 30 pills of Dalmane, a sleeping pill, andinjectable vials of vitamin B12, and the other package contained 500 ml of methadone. They also have a copy of a prescription for "Michelle Chase" (a name used by Anna) for 500 ml ofmethadone (5mg/5ml solution).
It is not known whether she actually took these drugs during her pregnancy or afterwards or at all. The drugs may have been obtained for her son, Daniel Smith, or Howard K. Stern, or another person.
Demerol, a narcotic analgesic, is a popular choice for painrelief during labor (since it alters how your body recognizes pain). Dalmane is used for the relief of insomnia and is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. Methadone is used in treating narcotic addiction but is also used to manage chronic pain. Vitamin B12 can be used to relieve anemia.
