As part of the hearing to determine whether Howard K. Stern, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor should face felony charges in the death of Anna Nicole Smith, a California pharmacist Ira Freemen testified that he flat out refused to fill a prescription for Smith.
A mere four days after her son died in September 2006, Eroshevich prescribed Anna high doses of painkillers, muscle relaxants and sedatives, which he viewed as "pharmaceutical suicide."
"If she got ahold of these medications, it could have fatal consequences," he testified.
And five months later, the pharmacist's predictions came true. She died from an overdose!
The prescription called for eight times the recommended dosage of a hypnotic sedative called Dalmane, prompting a toxicologist to state, "she is way out of her league on this."
Earlier this week, another psychiatrist testified that Anna continued to abuse prescription drugs when pregnant with her daughter, despite her efforts to quit.
