Phentermine and Michael Jackson

One of the probable cause of Michael Jackson’s death could be the abuse of a drug or a combination of different drugs. The first, who stated such version, was former lawyer of King of Pop – Mark Geragos.

Professor Laurie Levenson (from Loyola Law School) maintained the similar version; he believed that Michael Jackson’s doctor – Dr. Murray, might be involved in the death of his patient.

Assumptions of Dr. Murray’s guilt in the death of Michael Jackson appeared after controlled drugs, such as Phentermine psychostimulant and Clonazepam anticonvulsant were found in his office.

Subsequently, it was proved that the cause of Michael Jackson’s death was an overdose of the powerful Propofol anesthetic, which King of Pop took off-label.

In addition to Propofol, traces of other sedative and analgesic drugs, such as Ephedrine, Diazepam, Lidocaine, Lorazepam, Midazolam were found in the singer’s body.

Given the fact that Propofol that caused the death of Michael Jackson was prescribed by Dr. Murray, he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 4 years in prison.
