Ugh. I Have a Feeling This is Just the Beginning.

A lot of people are going to be in a lot of trouble as this story unfolds. TMZ unearthed a prescription written for Michelle Chase -- an alias Anna Nicole commonly used -- for methadone. It was written by Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, a friend of Anna's. The pills were shipped by a pharmacy in California to Vicky Marshall (Anna's real name) in the Bahamas. Here's the kicker -- the pills were prescribed and exported on August 25, 2006, just thirteen days before Anna gave birth to Dannielynn, and sixteen days before the death of her son, Daniel, whose death was related to the methadone in his system. My medical instincts tell me that a woman who is eight months pregnant should not be taking a heroin substitute, but what do I know?
It is possible that Anna never took the pills, and was just getting them for Daniel. Either way, this is illegal on oh-so-many levels. Documents viewable here. Remember the OJ Simpson trial? They didn't have bloggers then. Let the ride begin.

Just so you know, there's a chance that it's all totally legal. Your medical instincts are wrong. Women with opiate problems can take methadone during pregnancy.

The prescription shouldn't be written out to an alias but there is a chance that this doctor is completely legit. We'll have to wait and see.

Evilbeet in this case you got it a little wrong about pregnant women and methadone.
Yes it is bad for the baby. Any drug including alcohol should be avoided. Narcotics and other drugs pass through the placenta to the baby and the baby becomes addicted also. Methadone is more addictive than heroin and going cold turkey can kill both mother and baby. When the babies are born they are addicted and have to be weened off with drugs. Crack babies are the saddest thing they are pitiful and often grow up , mentally and psychologically damaged.
Dont get me wrong here, i absolutely detest junkies and I think junkie babies should be taken away from their mums at birth.
I am nurse and have had a lot to do with junkies so I am not talking crap. Just educating you a bit.

I have to agree with the two above statements. I am also a nurse and spent a lot of time working with addicted moms. Although methadone is also an opiate and does pass through to the baby, in comparison to heroin it is the lesser of two evils, so it is commonly prescribed throughout pregnancy to opiate-addicted moms trying to stay clean. Unlike heroin, methadone is a regulated drug, so it would be considered 'safer' in pregnancy, although babies are born addicted to methadone and must be gradually weaned off. A tragedy in itself, but not as bad as a pregnant mom shooting up heroin that came from God-knows-where using a dirty needle and contracting HIV, Hepatitis C, etc. etc.

Good to know, guys! My dreams of grand success in the medical profession deteriorated somewhere around freshman biology class, when I couldn't even manage to dissect a grasshopper. Thanks for the heads-up!

As a person who works in a methadone clinic I know for a fact that methadone is a) NOT an opiate b) not harder to kick or more addictive than heroin and c) it is not advisable for anyone on methadone to stop while pregnant because it is damaging for both the mother and the child. I am aware that methadone is controversial and I'm not here to start a methadone discussion, I just wanted to set some things straight.

wow, nice to know there are nurses that "detest" junkies. i would have hoped health care providers are have a bit more sympathy. anyways, just another "fyi" methadone comes in a liquid form (as in this rx - indicated by the 5mg/ml" dosage) not pills.

If it were being prescribed in a liquid form (like you say it was), then is it injected or would you drink it?

you would drink it. we usually mix it with tang or some kind of fruit-flavored drink (i work at a pharmacy).
