Prescription Drugs Found in Daniel Smith

In Touch Weekly is reporting that Anna Nicole Smith’s 20-year-old son had been taking a common antidepressant and a sleeping pill, and a combination of the two could have been the cause behind his death.

Daniel Smith had prescriptions for both the insomnia drug Ambien and the antidepressant Lexapro for two months and the buildup over the weeks could have been just too much for his body to handle.

Dr. Cyril Wecht, the pathologist brought in by Anna Nicole to conduct a second autopsy, says Daniel’s depression “had to do with a girlfriend.”

Daniel died on September 10 after flying to the Bahamas where Anna Nicole, 38, had just given birth to a girl she has named Hannah Rose.
