Dr. Drew Pinsky, board certified addiction specialist, gave RadarOnline.com an explanation of one of the newer drugs to surface in the cocktail of prescriptions the singer took in the hours before his death and offered some sympathic words for Jackson’s embattled physician Dr. Conrad Murray.
“Versed is normally only used in hospital and medical clinic settings only,” he told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Versed is another twilight drug like Diprivan. Versed is used in procedures like colonoscopies and cardioversions.”
“I feel bad for Dr. Murray. He got in over his head,” he continued. “It doesn’t mean that I don’t think he shouldn’t be held responsible, he should. It would take a team of doctors to deal with a patient going through a detox, if that was indeed what Dr. Murray was concerned with, because of concerns he had about Michael getting addicted to propofol. Michael knew the names of these drugs, there were others before Dr. Murray that most likely provided to Michael.”
