Inhaler? We Hardly Knew Her! -- Brit's Drug Test

11/13/2007 4:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney spearsTMZ has learned Britney Spears will now say her false positive drug test may have been caused by her inhaler, which she uses for asthma.

Sources connected with Spears told TMZ yesterday that the drug that may have caused the positive was Provigil, used to treat narcolepsy. But TMZ did some digging and found Provigil would not show up on a court-ordered drug test.

Now the same source says the drug that showed up may have been Albuterol, an asthma drug. But, again, we checked and Albuterol is not an amphetamine, and the class of drug that showed up on the test was an amphetamine.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will press the issue tomorrow in court. Stay tuned.

When you go for a drug test (and yes, I have gone for an employment drug test), you have to list ALL medications you are currently taking. That way, if you are taking a medication that could show as a positive on the test, you are covered. Also - they usually do a split test, i.e., they split the urine and put it in 2 vials and test both of them. These drug testing companies know what they are doing and are very used to dealing with people who try to lie their way out of their positive results.

They need to take some of her hair and test it.

I think everyone should leave Brit aone. has to learn on her on.Why are youll ever nt following K-Fed and the drugs aired on the news a while back/? Why are youl l always following her? It seems to me youll just want her to fail. I say leave her alone and go find someone else to mess with. She is doing what inside her mind she thinks is right< maybe not what youll want her to be or want

I'm a drugs worker and Britiney is talking comlpete rubbish, the said inhaler would not cause a false drugs test. A false drugs test is due to taking drugs, nothing else!!!

It depends id ther is being urine tested or blood tested or just the routine mouth swip. Even so, having been a drugs worker for over 10 years lets face it Britney is out of control and an addict. Until she see's this for her self she can tell as many tales as she like to try and get out of court trouble.

Before jumping to conclusions about her using drugs you should check your facts. There are numerous over the counter drugs that can cause false positive drug results. A poppy seed muffin can show positive for opiates. Ibuprofen can show positive for THC. Allergy and cold medications can show positive for amphetamines. It is unfair to judge Britney (although she seems to be of less than average intelligence) before all the facts are out.

Britney's an awesome person, woman, entertainer and Mom. How she holds up under all of this relentless media scrutiny and bashing is a testimony to her strength, perseverance and courage. (Rex)

This is a perfect example of how stupid this chick is. She doesn't have asthma, but uses an inhaler. Can somebody tell her she could die? Thanks

I hope someone can learn ffrom this mess. I used to think man, what a loser she is but now I just feel sorry for her. She's obviously addicted to drugs and can't see the light of day anymore.
