Former NBA basketball star Lamar Odom, 35, has reportedly come out of his four day coma at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. He had been found unresponsive in a room at a legal brothel in Nevada after ingesting a mixture of Reload, an 'herbal Viagra', and cocaine.Doctors have stated that Odom has only a 50/50 chance of a full recovery and that he hadn’t shown any signs of improvement since his admission to the hospital three days ago.

He has been on a ventilator since arriving at the hospital, but sources say that doctors have been weening him off by substituting an oxygen mask periodically. Doctors say it is certain that the deadly mixture of 'herbal Viagra' and cocaine contributed to the coma.

'Herbal Viagra' Reload sold to Odom at brothel

Lamar Odom is said to have taken ten Reload pills, a type of 'herbal Viagra', during a 3-day binge of drugs and sex.

The pills were sold to him at the brothel, according to reports. The FDA has reported that Reload pills are very dangerous and say that consumers should dispose of them straightaway. This warning was issued in 2013, so two years later it should have been known by potential customers this type of drug was dangerous.

The FDA says the Reload pills have sildenafil in them, which is the active ingredient in prescription Viagra. Sildenafil can lower a person’s blood pressure to unsafe levels. Authorities confiscated what was left of the brothel’s supply of Reload pills.

Odom compared to condition of late Bobbi Kristina Brown

Odom’s condition has been considered dire, according to doctors, and his state has been compared to the coma that the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston, was in before she died on July 22. Brown was in a coma for several months prior to her death.

Media reports say that Odom was possibly upset about his estranged relationship with his wife, Khloe Kardashian, and that he showed her picture to the women in the brothel.

He was also said to be crying and seemed traumatized. He and Khole are still legally married, but the couple has been separated and already signed divorce papers. It is also believed that the death of a close friend in June may have played a part in Odom’s state of mind.

However, despite the binging on cocaine and herbal Viagra, there now appears to be good News about Odom’s condition as he is said to have opened his eyes and indicated he wanted to see his two teenage children.
