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.

If Brit had any brains, she'd get a perscription for Adderall (sp?) or a diet drug. A perscribed medication (that shows up as an amphetamine - HELLO?!) is not prohibited and would not give a "dirty or positive" result...

She's getting poor advice from the TWEAKERS she's hanging out with.

Sounds like a typical addict..... Speaking as mother, if you dont love yourself to take care of yourself, you arent capable of loving anyone else around you. Including your precious children. The courts will do the right thing in this situation. I hope the best for those 2 precious boys, and Kevin seems to have it together! he is doing well for his kids. Brit on the other hand - Grow the **** up get some better people around you. Go back to rehab, and stay there as long as you can. Come back better, regain your life and care for your babies.

If her test was positive for something, why are they going back to court Friday because of the red light incident? Don't you think that her flunking a drug test would trump running a red light? TMZ, you all are a bunch of snitching sell out bitches!!

#216 -- Where have I been? I've been in the hospital, delivering your poor addicted babies. A tox screen is not ordered ESPECIALLY on a newborn...unless there is specific reason or concern that the mother is using illegal drugs. Maybe at the free clinic it is "protocol". Whoever told you that they do this "now'a'days" was lying to you. Probably to convince you to consent to the tox screen.

It probably would show up in a drug tests. Go to Wikipedia and look it up. Athletes were caught using it as a "doping" agent. So why would it not show up?

Hey #261, what planet are you on? Why does someone need to have been in the same situation to know what an amphetamine is? Sounds like you are a suit in a law firm with nothing better to do...
