Gerry Ryan’s autopsy report showed that cocaine he has consumed contained trace amounts of the veterinary drug Levamisole, usually used to treat parasitic worms in cattle and sheep.

The TV and radio personality’s autopsy also showed that he was taking a number prescription drugs also, at the time of his death. These include cyclizine to treat nausea and vomiting;  zolpidem, a sleeping tablet; and alprazolam, a drug used to treat stress and anxiety.

The Irish Daily Star obtained the autopsy report which showed up the worming powder. It’s believed that this was used to cut the cocaine he took on the night of his death. However the autopsy also shows that he had taken the cocaine hours before his death.

During the coroner’s court hearing Mr Ryan’s doctor told the court that he had come to see him eight days before his death due to stress and anxiety.

The last person to Mr Ryan alive was his taxi driver, Alan Wilton. The Daily Star reported that Mr Wilton found Mr Ryan to be “good form”.

He said “I could tell he had a few drinks taken but I wouldn’t say he was drunk or in a bad way. I pulled up outside his house and he went inside so he could get the cash to pay me…then he said good night and thanks to me and went into his house.”
