Controversy Around Elvis Presley’s Death at 42

Elvis Presley died on Aug. 16, 1977, in the bathroom of his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. He was 42 at the time of death. He had been on the toilet but had fallen off onto the floor, where he lay in a pool of his own vomit. He was found by his girlfriend, Ginger Alden. Panicked, his staff contacted an ambulance which rushed him to Baptist Memorial Hospital; after several attempts to revive him, he died at 3:30 pm CST. His autopsy was performed at 7 p.m.

Baptist wasn’t the closest hospital to Graceland, but Presley’s doctor, George Nichopoulos, known as “Dr. Nick,” ordered that it be sent there because he knew the staff was discreet.

    Okay you guys:

    It’s already been mentioned that Valium and diazepam are the same thing. So is valmid and ethinamate. Also Avenal seems to be a town in California. I’m guessing they meant aventyl.

     

    Anyway here’s the break down:

    THREE opiate/opioid painkillers: morphine, Demerol, codeine

    ONE antihistamine: chlorpheniramine

    THREE sedative/hypnotics: Placidyl, Ethinamate(Valmid), quaaludes

    ONE benzodiazepine: diazepam(Valium)
    Valium/diazepam: benzodiazepine

    FOUR barbiturates: Amytal, Nembutal, Carbrital, unknown

    TWO antidepressants: Elavil, Aventyl

    and

    ONE cold medicine: Sinutab

     

    Fat Elvis. Fat, numb, sedated, constipated, decongested, GABA dabbed, mood stabilized, non-allergic Elvis. And for good measure [here’s](https://twistedsifter.com/videos/elvis-presley-unchained-melody-final-performance/) him singing Unchained Melody like a couple days before they found him.

    Sounds like Dr Nick from the Simpsons is based on Elvis’s doctor!

    He mistook a pharmacy for a buffet.

    This sounds like the second fellowship of the ring.

    Never forget both Elvis & Michael Jackson were avid “anti drug” advocates. Drugs don’t kill people, enablers kill people.

    But he didn’t do drugs like those dirty, reefer-smoking hippies. His doctor just prescribed him medicine.

    When they told him he was taking a drug test, he crammed the night before
