Here's your prescription.
oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine
clonapine (commonly known as Clonazepam or Klonopin), diazepam (commonly known as Valium) and lorazepam (commonly known as Atavan) Topamax
Warning: Both oxycodone and hydrocodone (known by the trade names Oxycontin and Vicodin) are powerful opioid pain medications. Diazepam (Valium), temazepam (Restoril) and alprazolam (Xanax) are prescribed to treat anxiety. And doxylamine (Unisom) is a sleep aid.
Hydrocodone and oxycodone, for example, can depress activity in the area of the brain that tells you to breathe, Zacny says. Diazepam, temazepam and alprazolam in high or combined doses can decrease respiration. On top of this, the sleeping pill Ledger took could have further depressed the systems in his body that kept him breathing.
