Philip Seymour Hoffman's Deep Addictions Further Revealed: Variety & Numerous Prescription Pills Found In His Apartment

This sad story is proving just how horrible addiction can be for a person.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment this weekend, and it's clearly looking like an overdose was the reason.

But while heroin seems to be the main culprit, that wasn't the extent of his addiction. He was reportedly also found with methocarbamol (muscle relaxer), hydroxyzine (anti-anxiety), Vyvanse (ADHD), buprenorphine, and clonidine hydrochloride (blood pressure) at his place.

Those prescriptions are used to treat addiction, ADHD, and anxiety. It's unknown at this time whether or not he had prescriptions for those pills.

We hope this tragedy will help others struggling with addiction to seek the help they need.

    I have the exact same addiction as him (heroin), but I also had every single some of those pills prescribed to me. I head out to Orange County this coming Monday for rehab and another chance at life. God bless us addicts.
