    He might not have had enough drugs in his system to kill him, but the mixture of the drugs that he did take in ended up being fatal. And it isn't that he abused the prescribed drugs. It's that I guess one doctor didn't know that another had given Heath prescribed medication. So he had all these doctors giving him different kinds of pills and the result was that he died. It's a real shame. He died accidentally, I mean it's the only thing that makes sense.

    Insomnia itself doesn't cause death, does it?

    I believe it most certainly can kill you. Sleep is an essential, like eating or drinking. So I think you can die from going too long without it. I know for certain without sleep for like 3+ days and you'll hallucinate.

    U correct on this, but it wasn' only the pills that killed him. It was a combination of exhaustion and the mixture of pills that did him in. Thank u for clearin' that up for me.

    It most certainly can, I had a relative that died from health problems related ta insomnia. Insomnia can cause a whole list of health problems; heart failure, stroke, even kidney problems (yes it can cause kidney problems), etc. U can even die of simple exhaustion brought on by a lack of sleep.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Exactly.

    He did SUCH an amazing job at that character, it is going to be TOUGH! finding someone else to fill his shoes. No matter who they pick, it won't be the same guy. It will never be the same joker. And I've heard people say, "well, at least he left with something amazing on his plate..", or whatnot. And it's true. Some actors, singers, performers,etc. die, and their last work wasn't all that great.

    Ledger's?

    *&%^ing AMAZING !


    And to ron119125, yes he is being sorely missed. I still can't believe the guy died. I can't believe it. It was so unexpected, so sudden. And so accidental.

    wow.

    I gotta question, from where did you get this information? (not to question you but it is because I am really interested on knowing) I wanna know if he really begun to hear the joker's laughter and that led him to take the pills that later on killed him... I just wanna investigate a little more that's all ^_^ thanks

    But yes, it was an overdose of sleeping pills what killed him, but what I am searching is the cause of why he wasn't able to sleep... it is just plain curiosity thanks ^_^

    Heath Ledger losing sleep over the Joker - Story @ Comics2Film.com

    Take a look at that small news story, it notes about how Ledgers mind was racing and his lack of sleep during the filming of The Dark Night, those sleepless nights eventually led to an addiction of sleep medication, which in turn led to him gathering numerous brands and eventually mixing and passing away from it as a result. It's safe to say that his dedication to the role of Joker is what sparked his eventual downfall.

    Cele|bitchy » Blog Archive » Friends say they saw Heath Ledger’s death coming (Update)

    There's another article, detailing his life as his sleepless nights began, he chose to continue his addiction to those pills over his girlfriend and two year old daughter. He knowingly put himself at risk to continue his dedication to his roles and his acting career. He was truely a man who put effort into his acting, but it ultimately cost him, as nobody is invincible.
