Oxymorphone is a narcotic painkiller, while ziprozolam -- more commonly known as Xanax -- is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders.
Hemmila, a 22-year-old senior on UA's football team, died in his sleep in early August. His death was officially ruled accidental.
The Wildcats honored Hemmila before their first game of the season at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale on Sept. 3.
