Re: Toxic Drug Blood Levels

I am sorry to hear that I am also with son who died this is the levels of stuff they found in him but it says all at or below theraputic levels.

0.26 mg/ml amitriptyline
0.08 mg/ml nortriptyline
0.11 mg/ml citalopram
0.08 mg/ml hydrocodone
0.12 mg/ml fluoxetine
0.26 mg/ml norfluoxetine
0.35 mg/ml diazepam
0.43 mg/ml nordiazepam
0.011 mg/ml alprazolam

valproric acid
acetminophen
trihexylphenidyl
all present requires quantitation.

They do not show an over all toxic level. My son had liver wieghing 4,610 g
spleen was 270 g and heart was1040 g He was 6'4" and weighted 386 at death they said he died of morbid obesity with cardiomyophathy and they do not think his perscriptions had anything to do with his death. this is a list of the meds 2 Dr's had him on for 1 1/2 years before he died

Resperidone 10 mg
oxcarbazepine 150 mg
amitriptyline 100 mg
diazepam 10 mg
ozazepam 30 mg
gabapentin 300 mg
zolpidem 10 mg
perphenazine 4 mg
trihexphendyl 2 mg
diphenoxlate/atropine
omeprazole 20 mg
amlodipine besylate 5 mg
clonidine 0.1 mg
divalproex er 500 mg
amitriptyline 50 mg
fluoxetine 20 mg
lexapro 20 mg
hydrocodone 10mg/325mg
metoprolol er succianate 25 mg
levothyroxine 0.05 mg 50 mcg

I pulled this off Walgreens pharmacy this was the last month of filled perscriptions for my son. he was not on meds til he turned 30 then 2 dr's started perscribiong all this stuff I did not even know it was this amt til he passed away and i got into the parmacy. I was totally shocked and am still very upset they say he died becasue he was amost 200 pounds over weight
He was over wieght some before the meds but maybe by 100 or so pounds he gained alot taking all those meds the last 1 1/2 years. Makes me crazy thinking the Dr's helped put him in his grave.
