Ativan and Chris Cornell DeathChris Cornell, a pop musician who was found dead last year. He was recovered from addiction and abuse of drugs once. Initially, the reason for his death was unknown and the speculations had started in the media and the public that the cause of death could be a potential drug overdose, which unfortunately is the reason for death for many pop musicians and rock stars. Chris Cornell found to be taken Ativan for so long, he was then under the medication to overcome his anxiety disorders. You can get it from any local or Online Ativan Store and  Ativan helps the individual in controlling the excessive activity of neurons which generally lead to anxiety and stress disorders.

Toxicology reports specify that there is a possibility Chris Cornell had taken several drugs on the day he died and he said to his wife that he would have taken two or more than two Ativan pills on that day.

The entire burden was shifted to Ativan as it is the fifth most popular drug that is prescribed by the psychiatrists according to the survey conducted in 2011.

Is Ativan the reason behind Chris Cornell’s death? The autopsy reports reveal the truth. If we actually get into the detail the reason for his death was found to be Suicide by hanging but not drug overdose nor any other reason.

  • He would’ve possibly consumed pseudoephedrine as a decongestant for stuffy nose problem.
  • It was found that Cornell would’ve taken four dozes of Anxiety medicine Ativan / Ambien also known as lorazepam.
  • Though the drugs happen to be in his system, it was found the cause of death was by ‘Hanging’.
