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.

Ummm…maybe she has ADD or ADHD? It would explain both her sometimes behavior and failed drug tests. The most common medications for treatment are Adderall and Ritalin which both show up on generic drug tests as amphetamines. Considering that most adults on these medications don’t exactly walk around wearing a sign that says “I have problems sitting still and paying attention” or “hey freak want to steal my prescription amphetamines” ... that isn’t exactly the kind of news you want to be broadcasting!

Diane T, this will be an issue TOMORROW when they go back to court.

She SHOULD have only limited visitation at a designated location. No more home visits for hours, no more overnights. Not until she can comply with the court orders already in affect.

As far as I'm concerned, she's FAILED 6 drug tests. The reason she didn't show up, is because she KNEW they'd be positive.

It has been a long time since I took chemistry, but I think albuterol and amphetimine are both sympathomimetic amines, thus one might be confused for the other in a drug screen. Could be wrong. Maybe TMZ should do a little in depth research.

If she was on meth she wouldnt be able to eat. It kills your apetite. Some of you struggle with this, but i think its just because you are so desperate to tear down someone you have been jealous of for so long.


Whatever happens to Britney know this, you will still be you. A Nobody who posts tripe on Harvey's website so he can live a life of affluency. Harvey isnt just exploiting celebrities for his fame and fortune, he is also exploiting you. The more hits he gets, the more he can charge advetisers.

basically, you are pawns. Every last one of you. He uses you like the tools you are. Why not just send him checks directly?
