More details regarding the death of Ryan Gracie

Sherdog has more details regarding the death of Ryan Gracie. When Ryan was imprisoned, the doctor gave him several different drugs, including the following: Haldol (a powerful antipsychotic), Fenergan (which has a side effect of sleepiness), Topamax (for Migraines), Dienpax (tranquilizers), and OmniPlex (relaxant).

Now Ryan’s family is wondering if the doctor and his mix of narcotics are what ultimately led to Ryan’s untimely death:

“Doctor Sabino is crazy, a murderer,” Flávia Gracie, sister of the fighter, said in statements to the Brazilian press. “I told him to stop giving medicine to my brother. He said it was to prevent Ryan from being aggressive at the station. I argued that too much medicine would hurt, and the doctor replied that any remedy hurt, even aspirin.”

“Ryan, although wrong, had to be arrested and charged for crimes,” said Robson Gracie, Ryan’s father. “But his death is another thing. I will inquire about that quack doctor.”

The doctor, however, claims it wasn’t his medicine that killed Ryan:

“As I told a colleague, the dose that was applied was so little,” he said. “I have the greatest regret for what happened, but I fought against this with all I know.”

There are some other details in the report, such as the question of why Ryan was not taken to a hospital after being under the influence of several drugs and had taken blows to the head, as well as the fact that a report on the cause of death should be available in roughly 30 days.

    Phenergan is nothing more than a cough syrup.Haldol(dopamine) is not going to kill you. I do know diazepam(dienpax in other countries) is the generic for valium. Topamax is a siezure medicine which can have negative reactions when combined with other drugs, espically with products like cold medicine(phenergan) or with alcohol. That last drug that is mentioned omniplex, that one i am not sure of. I am a pharmaceutical buyer and have never come across that. Maybe it’s a mispelling or misinformation. To me seems like maybe he had scripts from different Dr’s who didn’t consult each other, and got a bad side effect but who knows. kinda too early and i’m nothing more than a buyer not a DR.

    I’m wondering what way that he was restrained and why the doctor felt the need to sedate him so heavily. How much of a threat was he to himself and everyone around him once they had him incarcerated? It will be interesting to find out in future reports as to the guidelines for administering drugs to presumably combatative suspects and the subsequent monitoring of the condition of that suspect.
