Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Jeff Lewis, once thought to be the team’s quarterback of the future, died in January as a result of an accidental drug overdose, according to an autopsy report obtained by the Observer.
The autopsy found morphine and zolpidem, a sedative and sleep aid more commonly known as Ambien, in Lewis’ blood.
Medication containers and handwritten documents found in Lewis’ Phoenix home indicated a possible history of prescription medication abuse, including zolpidem and the painkiller hydrocodone, Maricopa County medical examiner Kevin Horn wrote in his report.

Awful. The painkillers and depressant mix is a poor man's speedball. I've had a few friends die from it. They are the new heroin junkies. It is an epidemic and it has destroyed families.

The town I live in now has had a ridiculous amount of kids ages from 16-25 die from those terrible drugs.

The song in my sig reminds me about a friend of mine who died from an overdose from them.

This is sad news but not all that surprising. Not a big pharmacy guy but I don't think anything good comes from mixing morphine with anything. Dud had some problems. Hope he is in a better place and hope his family will heal.

I used to have problems with painkillers too, so I know how hard it can be when it comes to that stuff, RIP.

I have such a fear of painkillers that I rarely will even take a couple of tylenol. One of my best friends is a pain killer addict. He is spiraling down fast.

Yeah those prescription painkillers like the hydrocodones and oxycodones are no joke and are hard to lay off of, I wouldn't be surprised if most players with a history of injuries to have the same sort of issues, it's sad

Or Sean Payton.....JK.. I wouldn't be surprised man. NFL players get it for pain from their jobs and get hooked. Possibly how Jeff Lewis got addicted. It's crazy man.

Yeah I broke my wrist and went through hell with 5 surgeries on it cuz of a staph infection so I was on the edge with those things... Just cuz of the pain, it's no joke and I still get itches from time to time.. I can only imagine what the players go through, it's some tough stuff
