Controversial 1990 actress Stacey Dash admits to being addicted to drugs and finds her favorite drug is Prescription Pills, MTO News
The actress reveals a dark past where she secretly takes pill-pop drugs and is the victim of physical abuse that once left her with a broken arm-Dr. In a new interview with Oz.
“I was taking 18-20 pills a day,” Dash said in an interview aired Thursday.
Oz admits, “18-20 vicodins a day, it’s expensive”, which spreads a tearful dash to answer: “Yes, I’ve lost everything.”
Hydrocodone (Vicodine) is an opioid prescription painkiller that is usually prescribed for moderate to severe pain. For those weighing more than 100 pounds, the maximum dose recommended by doctors is no more than two tablets of 2.5- or 5-mg every four to six hours.
Stacey described the addiction as her “deepest, darkest secret” in a Facebook post and told Oz that she would take “about five to ten grand” pills every month.
Clues shared with actress Dr Oz that she was in a relationship with an abusive boyfriend in the past, whom she told once left her with a broken arm in her early twenties.
He used to beat me so much, I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. I couldn’t walk -[he broke] My hand, tied me to the bed for three days, “he said.” Some part of me thought it was what I deserved.
The restless actress, who later became an extreme right-wing black conservative scholar, blames her faith in God for helping her stay calm but admits she has to fight “sometimes” to keep her faith.
