The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that every 19 minutes, someone dies of a drug overdose in America, and most of those overdose deaths are due to legal prescription drugs. Our celebrities are not immune to this statistic. We have witnessed some very tragic deaths of celebs who just took too much. In our infographic Prescription Drugs and Celebrity Deaths, Lakeview Health maps out what deadly prescription medication mixes were found in these deceased actors and musicians.
