Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who practices in Los Angeles, wrote a prescription for methadone on August 25, 2006, 13 days before Anna Nicole gave birth. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was by Anna Nicole’s side when she participated in West Hollywood’s Gay Pride Parade back in 2005

Anna Nicole Smith, who was living in the Bahamas, 39, died on Feb. 8 after collapsing at a Florida hotel. Her cause of death is not known.

Actress, model and celebrity , Anna Nicole Smith, (November 28, 1967 – February 8, 2007), who first gained popularity as Playboy's 1993 Playmate of the Year.

Her highly publicized marriage to oil business executive and billionaire J. Howard Marshall, 63 years her senior, resulted in considerable speculation that she married the octogenarian merely for his money, which she denied. Following his death, she began a lengthy and ongoing legal battle over a share of his estate. Her case, Marshall v. Marshall reached the U.S. Supreme Court on a question of federal jurisdiction.

In the months before her death, she was the focus of renewed press coverage surrounding the death of her son, Daniel Smith.

The Medical Board of California began looking at Dr. Sandeep Kapoor after receiving information about possible misconduct and officially declined to give details on the allegation or its source but said it was connected to Smith. Investigators reported finding prescription medicines, but there were no illegal drugs in Smith's hotel room, where she collapsed on Thursday. Perper also said that his team "didn't find in the stomach any kind of tablets or pills."

According to the media group, TMZ, the prescription was written for Michelle Chase and Key Pharmacy in the San Fernando Valley filled the prescription and sent it to "Vicky Marshall" (sic) in the Bahamas. Vickie Marshall is Anna Nicole's legal name.... Read More

Methadone is a rigorously well-tested medication that is safe and efficacious for the treatment of narcotic withdrawal and dependence. For more than 30 years this synthetic narcotic has been used to treat opioid addiction. Heroin releases an excess of dopamine in the body and causes users to need an opiate continuously occupying the opioid receptor in the brain. Methadone occupies this receptor and is the stabilizing factor that permits addicts on methadone to change their behavior and to discontinue heroin use.

Taken orally once a day, methadone suppresses narcotic withdrawal for between 24 and 36 hours. Because methadone is effective in eliminating withdrawal symptoms, it is used in detoxifying opiate addicts. It is, however, only effective in cases of addiction to heroin, morphine, and other opioid drugs, and it is not an effective treatment for other drugs of abuse. Methadone reduces the cravings associated with heroin use and blocks the high from heroin, but it does not provide the euphoric rush. Consequently, methadone patients do not experience the extreme highs and lows that result from the waxing and waning of heroin in blood levels. Ultimately, the patient remains physically dependent on the opioid, but is freed from the uncontrolled, compulsive, and disruptive behavior seen in heroin addicts.

Withdrawal from methadone is much slower than that from heroin. As a result, it is possible to maintain an addict on methadone without harsh side effects. Many MMT patients require continuous treatment, sometimes over a period of years.

Methadone maintenance treatment provides the heroin addict with individualized health care and medically prescribed methadone to relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduces the opiate craving, and brings about a biochemical balance in the body. Important elements in heroin treatment include comprehensive social and rehabilitation services.

Our Survey:

Most of the people says, many doctors write prescriptions when they should not. Often times you just walk in the door and ask for something they will gladly write it out for you. I think all doctors that do this should be held accountable, not just this one.

The problem is when one Doctor prescribing for a famous person gets in trouble, it effects everyone and by this, people who really do need prescriptions for either real anxiety disorders or pain conditions. Why should people with legitimate health problems be penalized because of things like this?

But in case of Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, somepeople wrote:

  • Sad how everyone thinks anna nicole is the only celebrity out there to use an assumed name to stay out of the press when it comes to obtaining meds? are you people really that foolish and naive enough to think she stands alone in doing this? just what do you think ‘entertainment medicine’ means? every time a celebrity gets busted there is a doctor waiting to exhale so they don’t get busted along with that celebrity…and methadone does not hurt the unborn fetus/baby…but giving that you don’t want to report the facts and just exploit the negative you should do your (complete) research before reporting anything…by BABS February 16th, 2007
  • He’s my “travel” doctor! Whenever I’m traveling out of the country he makes sure I’m well protected from any foreign diseases. He’s a great doctor with a lovely manner and I hope this “buzz” is ultimately, harmless.......SJ February 16th, 2007
  • Dr. Kapoor has been the only doctor who has truly cared about my well being and health. He is a doctor who listens, cares and understands. I hope this nightmare ends and Dr. Kapoor can go on with his life.

The key thing is that she made her own decision to take risks related to the use of the drug freely. She probably killed herself with it. People do it all the time

In any event she was not a child. She was an autonomous adult and free to drink snake oil, weight loss tonics/drugs and controlled drugs if she so chose, she died.

Anna Nicole Smith, who was living in the Bahamas, 39, died on Feb. 8 after collapsing at a Florida hotel.

  • She was always such a mess when the media got a hold of her. I am sure when she walked into Dr. Sandeep’s office, she was in the same type of reporter said.
