's former physician has agreed not to administer the drug that killed the King of Pop. Dr. Conrad Murray and Texas Medical Board officials have mutually agreed that the medic will be prohibited from using or prescribing Propofol or other heavy sedatives.

The license restrictions will remain in effect until ongoing criminal allegations against Murray are resolved. The doctor has pleaded not guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge in the death of Jackson.

Dr. Conrad Murray, however, is still allowed to prescribe pain medications and local or topical anesthetics.

Murray has clinics in Las Vegas and Houston, Texas, as well as California.
