Admittedly, when I heard Matthew Perry had passed, I immediately thought that maybe he had relapsed, and the worst had happened.

He mysteriously died while soaking in his hot tub, and we have been waiting on the autopsy report to be published so we can find out what definitively caused his demise.

There were rumors flying that he maybe he had drowned, or that he had suffered a heart attack, but it turns out that neither of those things caused his death.

So, what caused Matthew Perry’s tragic death?

What The Autopsy Report Shows About Matthew Perry’s Death

The autopsy report has been filed, and it paints a sad story about what happened to Matthew.

His final days were filled with substances that, working together, were too much for his body to handle.

Now, before you go spreading rumors that Matthew relapsed, that isn’t necessarily what happened.

First of all, Matthew had been receiving ketamine infusions to help with his sobriety, but there was a lethal amount of ketamine found in his system.

But, that’s not the only thing the examiner found.

Matthew was also on buprenorphine, an opioid-like drug that is supposed to help opioid addicts in their recovery.

But, there was more…

According to TMZ, Matthew “had been taking Tamoxifen to lose weight.”

Not horrible in and of itself, but he simply had too much of everything circulating through his system — a system that had already been used and abused in a rough way.

As if that weren’t enough, Matthew was apparently also on an anti-diabetic medication, AND he was consuming nicotine lollipops — used to help him kick a two-pack-a-day smoking habit.

His friends also report that Matthew had been taking testosterone injections prior to his death — a practice which made him “angry and mean” in the weeks before his death.

In the assistant’s bedroom, there were multiple open, empty, half-filled medication bottles prescribed to the decedent, as well as over-the-counter medications, vitamins, digestive aids and dishes filled with multiple various loose pills, tablets, caplets, candy and breath mints.

Now, let’s talk about that ketamine that was found in Matthew’s system for a second.

While Matthew had publicly been on ketamine infusions to help maintain his sobriety, ketamine can also be used recreationally as a mild hallucinogenic drug.

According to the DEA, ketamine “distorts perceptions of sight and sound and makes the user feel disconnected and not in control.”

There is some thought that there was so much ketamine in Matthew’s system that it was quite possible that it came from a source other than his infusions.

So, did he relapse? I sure don’t want to say yes.

That’s kind of his business. There is, perhaps, a legit reason that each and every one of the medications found in his system were supposed to be there.

All the medications aside, Matthew Perry’s death was tragic, and he will be sorely missed.
