Almost a month after the death of Diego Maradona, the British tabloid The Mirror, made new revelations, about his death this Wednesday, December 23.
Diego Maradona’s death on November 25, 2020, just a few weeks after he was admitted to hospital again, is still causing shock but also speculation as an investigation has been opened against the ambulance attendants who came to his aid.
This Wednesday, December 23rd, the British tabloid The Mirror made new revelations about the disappearance of the soccer legend.
According to them, El Pibe de Oro had no trace of alcohol, or drugs in his system when he drew his last breath.
However, he was suffering from “major problems with his heart, liver and kidneys”. However, a cocktail of prescription drugs consisting of quetiapine, venlafaxine and levitracetam was found.
While the former drug is used to treat mood disorders, depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Venlafaxine is an antidepressant administered to treat panic attacks.
Levitracetam belongs to a class of anticonvulsant drugs, and is used to treat epilepsy, in addition to other molecules, thereby reducing the number of seizures.
Traces of Ranitidine have also been found in Diego Maradona, a drug used to treat indigestion and heartburn, which is under investigation in the United Kingdom on suspicion of increasing the risk of cancer.
And while some of these drugs can cause cardiac arrhythmia, there would be “no evidence that Diego Maradona was undergoing treatment for the heart disease he suffered from. “
