"I believe there is evidence that he was dependent on Demerol, possibly," said Waldman. According to USA Today, Walderman suggests that Jackson was also addicted to opioids the month before he suddenly died.

A key symptom of Demerol withdrawal is insomnia, says Walderman, which would explain Jackson's dependency on propofol.
