Are these the last days of Jeff Conaway? The Grease actor and Celebrity Rehab star has been in a medically-induced coma for a week after being found unconscious at home -- and so far there are no signs he will recover.

"He's not getting any better," an insider told E! News. "He was excessively using prescription meds."

Dr. Drew Pinsky, who treated Conaway on Celebrity Rehab, clarified that his immediate medical condition is pneumonia and not an overdose, but that his drug use could have caused him to ignore the symptoms of his illness until it was too late.

"Just visited Jeff Conaway," Dr. Drew tweeted. "He is stable & looks like he will recover from his pneumonia. Not an OD like press is alleging & certainly not dead."

"Pneumonia with sepsis. No evidence of intentional OD."

Will Conaway ever recover? He currently remains in critical condition, but look for updates here on SheKnows as soon as they happen.
