Prescription Mix Killed Levert

Gerald Levert’s death November 10th was the accidental result of a mix of prescription narcotics and over-the-counter drugs.

A February 8th report listed several drugs in Levert’s bloodstream including Vicodin, Percocet, Darvocet, Xanax and two antihistamines.

A spokesman for Levert’s family said the singer was taking some of the meds for chronic pain resulting from a shoulder problem and a 2005 surgery to repair a severed Achilles tendon.

An autopsy also revealed Levert had pneumonia.
