The report ruled that the official cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries and drowning. But it also showed that therapeutic levels of the anti-depressant mirtazapine and prescription sleeping pill Lunesta were found in Scott's system at the time of his death. Side effects of mirtazapine can include general symptoms of malaise, but more rarely, can result in severe mood changes and hallucinations, according to Mayo Clinic. Meanwhile, Lunesta is described as an eszopiclone medication used to treat insomnia .
Scott, the director behind such films as "True Romance," "Top Gun" and "Enemy of the State," jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge on Aug. 19 in Los Angeles. He left notes for friends and loved ones in his car, but did not indicate a cause for his actions. His death has officially been ruled a suicide by the coroner's office.
