Welcome to HCM
The drugs your brother in law was taking were Xanax (alprazolam), vicoddin (Hydrocodone
), methadone, trazodone, clonazepam
etc. All of these drugs cause CND depression
and to some extent respiratory depression. If they are taken together severe CNS as well as Respiratory depression occurs. The cause of death in his case may be over all increase in dose of CNS depressants.
