An autopsy revealed that Michael Jackson died of a lethal overdose of the anesthetic propofol, or Diprivan, which he used to relieve his chronic insomnia.

Seal

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Seal is physically striking—but those scars come from discoid lupus, not from tribal rituals as is rumored.

User Comments about Doxepin Hydrochloride
21 Sep 2011 this is one of the worst medications i've ever been prescribed. keeps me awake all nite, therefore i'm barely functional during the day. i have internal scleroderma, fibrosis of the lungs, insomnia, general rash, skin blisters and have been so depressed i want to find a handgun to use on myself. my psychiatrist did this to me.

10 Jan 2011 It was the only drug I tried that, coupled with Ambien, helped me sleep through the night. It also seems to relieve pain. The only complaint I have is that it seems to exacerbate othotstatic hypotention. My heat intolerance has gotten much worse since taking the drug.
