Chris Cornell's Widow Suing A Doctor Over Her Husband's Suicide

Chris Cornell went two years without seeing his doctor for a check-up, but that didn't prevent him from obtaining prescriptions for powerful drugs, alleges a lawsuit from his widow. Vicky Cornell is suing Dr. Robert Koblin for malpractice, claiming he gave her husband 940 doses of Ativan and Oxycodone over the last 20 months of his life. She says that despite the singer's history of addiction, Koblin never tried to determined if he was in danger. The lawsuit alleges Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety medication, increases the risk of suicide in addiction-prone people by impairing judgment and rational thinking, and diminishing impulse control. The suit also alleges Dr. Koblin never warned Chris about the potentially fatal side-effects of the drugs he was taking and allowing non-physician staff to write prescriptions.
