Demi Lovato has been extremely sick and is still in hospital after her overdose

A source tells ET that the singer is “experiencing nausea and fever,” six days after suffering an apparent drug overdose, adding, “she is under the care of medical professionals and is expected to recover…”

A source told ET that Lovato was “still in the hospital and working on getting better and recovering” after being rushed to the hospital last Tuesday. Addiction expert Dr. Howard Samuels sat down with ET on Monday to offer some insight on the 25-year-old singer’s ongoing hospitalization.

“We don’t know exactly [which] drugs Demi was using, but for her to be in the hospital for six days sort of suggests to me that they’re detoxing her off of an an opiate or a benzo[diazepine], such as Xanax or Valium, and they didn’t want to release her until she’s gotten these drugs out of her system,” Samuels explained.
