Stevie Nicks: 'Medication Ruined My Life'


Stevie Nicks


Singer Stevie Nicks regrets taking prescription medication to aid her drug addiction recovery - because it 'ruined' a huge part of her life.

The Fleetwood Mac star, Stevie Nicks struggled with substance abuse in the 1980s and she checked into the Betty Ford Center in California in 1986 to overcome her cocaine addiction.

The same year, a doctor prescribed tranquilizers to help her recovery - but Stevie Nicks admits the pills "nearly killed" her and took away eight years of her life.

She tells FOX411's Pop Tarts, "The only thing I would change is walking into that psychiatrist's office who prescribed me (the pills). That ruined my life for eight years."

"That was just a stupid doctor making a groupie mistake and just wanting me to come in there, tell him about all my music friends and young Hollywood, and that nearly ruined my life and nearly killed me."

"That's eight years that I could have. God knows, maybe I would have met someone, maybe I would have had a baby. That was my prime eight years. That was a big mistake. Everything else was exactly how it should have been."
