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.

i dont feel sorry for her AT ALL and i'll tell you why. as a social worker i see MANY people with REAL problems that don't have the financial means to help solve those problems. whether its drugs, alcohol, having your kids taken away, therapy needs, etc. and here this SKANK has the financial means to get help but she chooses not to. not only that but she's an irresponsible stupid selfish brat who has no business being a mother. and she's a complete imbicile to boot- she does NOT have asthma (i've read that in various places) yet she uses an inhaler to lose weight b/c she's an idiot

Really now    

This story is false. TMZ retracted this story 3 days ago about a positive drug test. I am not sure what is the motivation here but this story is not true. TMZ you really need to do better than this. By the way I note that a lot of you seem very knowledgeable on narcotics and drug tests. Lot of specialists here...

#27... Unfortunately, many people with asthma smoke--do you really think a nicotine junkie is going to let common sense interfere with getting a fix? I'm constantly trying to get my ex to quit smoking. A, she has asthma, and B, even more importantly, she's a horrible example to my daughter.

Smokers suck.

Maybe she's on benzedrine. It's an aphemtamine used to treat ADHD and if anyone has a hyperactivity disorder, it's Britney. That, or she's just flat out manic-depressive.

TMZ, please get it right. As you can see the drug for narcolepsy is an amphetamine!!! I love reading your site, however just really disappointed at all the negative postings!!!

Amphetamine or Amfetamine(Alpha-Methyl-PHenEThylAMINE), also known as beta-phenyl-isopropylamine and benzedrine, is a prescription stimulant commonly used to treat Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults and children. It is also used to treat symptoms of traumatic brain injury and the daytime drowsiness symptoms of narcolepsy and chronic fatigue syndrome. Initially it was more popularly used to diminish the appetite and to control weight. Brand names of the drugs that contain Amphetamine include Adderall, Dexedrine and Vyvanse. The drug is also used illegally as a recreational club drug and as a performance enhancer. The term "Amphetamine" may also refer to the class of compounds derived from Amphetamine, often referred to as the Substituted Amphetamines.

#46 - shut the hell up! I check two websites first thing every morning. TMZ.com and MSNBC.com. More than HALF of the entertainment stories on MSNBC.com site TMZ as their initial source and all the stories have been confirmed. Just because this is a celebrity site doesn't mean their information is fabricated or in any other way false.

And anyone can be knowledgeable with regard to narcotics and drug tests. It's called research.

If you don't like TMZ then GO READ SOMETHING ELSE AND SPARE US YOUR IDIOTIC COMMENTS!
