Metz said Prince had suffered from pain for years and likely believed he was taking a common painkiller.Johnson asked his own doctor, Michael Todd Schulenberg, to see Prince on April 7, 2016 . Schulenberg told authorities he gave Prince an IV; authorities said he also prescribed Vitamin D and a nausea medication – under Johnson's name.Johnson then called Schulenberg on April 14, asking the doctor to prescribe a pain medication for Prince's hip. Schulenberg did so, again under Johnson's name, Metz said.On that day, Schulenberg saw Prince and ran some tests and prescribed other medications to help him.Federal authorities announced that Schulenberg had agreed to pay $30,000 to settle a civil violation from the allegation that he illegally prescribed the opioid oxycodone for Prince in Johnson's name.Oxycodone, the generic name for the active ingredient in OxyContin, was not listed as a cause of Prince's death.
