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.

Albuterol is not an amphetimine, but if she is taking corticostreoidsfor her asthma such as Flovent, it MAY cause a false positive. People who take corticosteroids are advised not to donate blood, because the medicine has a history of making the tests come out false positive---for drugs, diseases, etc. So maybe she is taking Flovent or Serevent?

Perhaps her voice as well as " her asthma" would be improved if she quit smoking.

Kfed really is the better parent. Brit can't even keep up the appearance.

We’ll all find out after the 26th. I can wait until then. I believe in the end, she’ll only have monitored visitation at a designated place, she has to go to.

Do Carl's Jr cheeseburgers show up on drug tests? If they do I think I may have the reason she failed.

Why is she on all that crap in the first place. She smokes, she does not have asthma! and with all the caffeine I highly doubt she has a sleeping disorder give me a break.
She has a un-healthy life style that would make anyone tired!
This is how Anna Nicole got started with her drug collection.
