Uh… is there a safe word?!

UPDATE 8:46 PM EST: The pills Lamar had been taking at Love Ranch South were called Reload.
Two years ago, the Food and Drug Administration had issued a public notification to consumers that the sexual enhancement drug contained a hidden ingredient that wasn't on the label.
The FDA explained that the pills contain sildenafil – which is the active ingredient in Viagra – but that it's not declared on the packaging.
The organization warned that it could dangerously lower blood pressure, especially in men who are taking prescriptions that treat diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, or high blood pressure.
The administration even advised that those who posses the pills should toss them, writing:
"Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away."
Reports say the brothel sold Reload at the establishment, and that the athlete purchased some once he got there. The sheriff allegedly confiscated the rest of the pills from the business.
If these allegations are true, it's no surprise that Lamar Odom is in such bad shape.
Following Lamar's medical emergency at a legal Nevada brothel on October 13, medical professionals have weighed in on the circumstances regarding the incident, particularly where it concerns the athlete's alleged use of herbal viagra.
According to a doctor, herbal viagra mixed with drugs and alcohol is a DEADLY combo:
"One should stay away from poppers, cocaine, and alcohol — it takes you out of the party and everything becomes much more dangerous because of the effect of the veins and capillaries being opened. Many people do mix these and don't overdose, but what can happen is that someone will get arrhythmia where the heart starts beating irregularly and then one could go into respiratory arrest, which is where the heart actually stops."
Wow. Considering Lam was reportedly found with cocaine in his system and was known to be drinking at the time of his medical emergency, this is NOT good news.
The health expert elaborated on the scary info, saying:
"When someone takes these, you get a feeling similar to a small dose of speed and it increases blood flow in all the right spots. They're very common and easy to buy. Mostly the ingredients are not listed and you don't know what's in it when you ingest it, that's a big warning sign."
The disturbing info comes on the heels of news that the 35-year-old's father, Joe Odom, has arrived at the Las Vegas area hospital where Lam is being treated.
We just wonder if the former reality star's kids will also make a trip to the hospital given the dire circumstances…

Whoa! Elle outdid themselves this year!
The glossy just revealed their annual Women In Hollywood issue, and there's a whole handful of fierce cover stars for 2015!
This time, the mag decided to stray from controversy, dressing each star simply in either black, white, or both.
But that doesn't mean these covers are safe!
We think our faves might be Salma and Dakota's, but we can just picture what the upcoming spread will have in store from these amazing women!
Be sure to check out all of them in the gallery (above).

Sounds like Scott Disick finally got his wake-up call.
We sincerely hope he works to get the help he needs for his drug and alcohol addiction, especially considering the recent events with Lamar and a possible "overdose."
The two were very close, so we can only imagine how Scott might be handling the news of his friend's coma.
Wishing him the best.
