Brittany Murphy was very ill in the hours before she went into cardiac arrest and died, sources tell TMZ.
We're told Murphy was taking prescription meds for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. We're told Murphy began vomiting early Sunday morning and told family members she was feeling very ill.
Sources say various prescriptions were found in the home -- written for Brittany Murphy, husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany's mom. One source says, "There were a lot ... a lot of prescriptions in the house."
Law enforcement sources tell us Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and somehow ended up in the shower ... there was, we're told, a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area.
We're also told authorities did not find illegal drugs in the house, but Murphy was definitely taking various prescription meds.
Sources say her condition and the meds could have triggered a heart attack, but it's too early to know. An autopsy will be performed Monday or Tuesday. We reported earlier Monjack did not want an autopsy but ultimately it's the Coroner's call.
As we first reported, Brittany Murphy's mother told paramedics her daughter suffered from diabetes. We're told it was type 2 diabetes and people involved in the case doubt her condition caused her death. (TMZ)
Her mother apparently found Brittany unconscious in the shower and dialed 911................... Why doesn't her husband want an autopsy performed????

Through Brittany's rep, the family released this statement: "The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy. She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."
Murphy's dad Angelo Bertolotti is struggling to come to terms with his sudden loss.
He tells UsMagazine.com, "There is nothing I can say. I can't believe this is happening. She was a young 32. She wasn't supposed to die like this.
"I don't understand how she died. This doesn't make sense to me."
But Bertolotti, who had reportedly served time in prison for his ties to the mafia, confesses he had not seen the star since 2006, blaming her marriage to husband Simon Monjack for pushing them apart.
He adds, "Ever since she married that Simon, I lost contact with her. But I always kept track of her to make sure she was OK in case she needed me. She married him and everything changed. After that, we weren't so close."
Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived, multiple sources tell TMZ.
She was 32.
A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack, the Los Angeles City Fire Department tells TMZ.
We're told Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," and "Don't Say a Word."
Story developing ...
OMG. Please don't be true. This is so horrible!
The 'Sin City' actress, who is married to British writer-director Simon Monjack, has her sights set on starting a family in the near future.
Simon said: "Please God, next year we are having a family!"
Brittany added: "Yes! Yes! In about a year we plan to have children."
Simon also hit back at past rumors Brittany, 30, only married him to stop him being deported from the US.
Simon - who co-wrote 'Factory Girl' starring Sienna Miller - told People magazine: "All these ridiculous people came out and said all this nonsense when we got married, but thank God we had the substance and the history within that to say, 'Yeah, whatever!'
"We still don't understand what happened. It's made us laugh, it's made us cry, but it's made us stronger."
The couple tied the knot at their Los Angeles home in front of close family and friends last year.

On the set of her latest movie, Brittany Murphy has become a total bitch to work with.
Her behavior on the LA set of "Across the Hall" has gotten increasingly bizarre, according to spies.
Murphy has made outrageous demands while acting "like a diva," said one insider.
"She's extremely difficult. When she goes to the set, it comes to a grinding halt. She's so hot and cold, you never know.
According to our sources, Murphy insists on having diagonally cut peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts removed.
"She needs one every half hour. It's painstaking- her assistant takes about a half an hour making each one," said one crew member.
Even her husband Simon Monjack is giving the set problems. He intervenes so much that producers had to call a meeting to discuss what to do with the annoying hubby.

The 'Little Black Book' star also reportedly claimed her husband - British
screenwriter Simon Monjack - was kidnapped for 10 days in April by agents of
her supposed stalker, according to Brittany's former member of staff.
The unnamed male ex-employee told the New York Daily News newspaper: "When
he came back, he had head injuries. He was pale and sometimes had trouble
The 29-year-old actress then reportedly told the former member of staff she
could not pay him because she had used all her money for the ransom.
However, the dates of the alleged kidnapping coincide with tabloid reports
that Monjack was jailed by US immigration authorities for overstaying his
Brittany was rumoured to have married the 'Factory Girl' screenplay writer
to stop him being deported from the US.
According to reports, Monjack was arrested on expired visa charges in the
middle of the night on March 27 - just weeks before the couple's secret
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Brittany knew nothing about any
Monjack's lawyer said: "These charges are being made by disgruntled
ex-girlfriends and immigration officials have concluded the marriage had no
bearing on my client's visa status."
The couple, who began dating last year, tied the knot at their Los Angeles
home in front of close family and friends in May.
Brittany's representative said: "They were married at their home in Los
Angeles several weeks ago in a very intimate ceremony. It was officiated by
a rabbi and they were surrounded by their families."
The '8 Mile' star insists the deportation rumours are "preposterous lies."
Brittany told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Everything was just so fabricated
