Prescription medications discovered in Matthew Perry’s home following his apparent drowning

Following Matthew Perry’s apparent drowning death, several prescription medications were discovered in his home, law enforcement sources informed TMZ on Sunday.

Several prescription medicines were discovered in the home where Perry tragically passed away in his hot tub on Saturday, despite their repeated claims that there were no illegal narcotics on the property.

The outlet stated that “authorities found anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and a COPD drug in the house.”

According to the CDC, COPD, short for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is a term used to describe illnesses that result in airflow obstruction and breathing-related issues.

Smoking is a common cause of the illness, which can result in chronic bronchitis or emphysema. Perry had already acknowledged that he had smoked all of his life.

The Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed Perry’s death on Sunday. An autopsy will be performed to ascertain whether narcotics were present in Perry’s system at the time of his death.

It’s possible that the outcomes won’t be known for several months.

The source earlier said that on the day of his passing, the former cast member of “Friends” spent two hours playing pickleball at the Rivera County Club, which is close to his Pacific Palisades home.

He reportedly asked his helper to pick up a new iPhone and prescription glasses for him when he got home.

The “17 Again” star’s assistant discovered him unconscious in his jacuzzi two hours later and dialed 911.

The publication was able to obtain a 16-second audio clip of the 911 dispatch in which a male was heard yelling “rescue 23” and “drowning.” The sound had been muted for the most part.
