Britney Comes to Attention -- Deficit Disorder

11/15/2007 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ has learned Britney Spears will now play the ADD card in court tomorrow, arguing that her medication caused a positive reading on a drug test last week.

As we first reported, a source connected to Britney first said Provigil, a drug used to treat narcolepsy, was the cause of the false positive. But then TMZ reported that Provigil would not show up on a court-ordered drug test.

Then Brit's peeps said the reason for the positive reading was that she has asthma, and used an inhaler of Albuterol. But then we reported the drug Brit tested positive for was an amphetamine -- and Albuterol is not.

So now -- Atttention Deficit Disorder -- just like Paris. And based on our information -- just like Paris -- we believe Britney's prescription is for Adderall. That drug fits the bill, because Adderall is an amphetamine.

The lawyers are in court tomorrow. We're told K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will renew his motion to prohibit Brit from driving with the kids in the car, especially after blowing a red light at a dangerous intersection a few days ago -- with the kids in the back seat.

"especially after blowing a red light at a dangerous intersection a few days ago -- with the kids in the back seat"
give it up... it happens! We all just don't have you cameras watching our every move.
What makes you people think that you're so perfect and do no wrong?? It makes me sick to see all this bs about Brit. She should have her kids because there's no proof of neglect or abuse. Why isn't k-dead getting drug testings? He's a known drug user!
Britney is not perfect.. just like everyone of us. "Judge not, lest ye be judged." I know that means nothing to some of you but it will one day.

She ´s not an ADD. Just want to diet. Sad. Also, Provigil, Aderall and asthma meds (how about quit smoking????), that is a potent mix. Loser.

Adderall? Jesus, every damn celebrity has ADD. Hope someone points out the effect ADD meds have on someone who does not have that disorder.

And why has this not shown up in previous drug screenings?

Um, if she's on Adderall, wouldn't it have shown up on the previous 8 or so drug tests? Especially considering Adderall is both physically and psychologically addictive? Those aren't pills you just pop on a whim... unless she's abusing those, too...

She's should lose her kids. She's on way too much medication for a person her age, there's NO WAY she needs all that. She's on adderall for weightoss probably. I hope she O.D.'s, I'm SO sick of her redneck ass.

ADD, no way. She is just a lush.

ADD meds do not cause a false possitive but a LUSH does.

suziON- you apparently don't have children. when you have kids you try to do everything possible to keep them safe. that would mean not driving like a complete idiot- among other things. oncoming traffic was able to stop on time to let this pathetic mess drive on but next time she might not be so lucky. after all, that traffic has the right of way. do people make mistakes? sure. but she shows a consistent lack of respect and responsibility with everything and everyone, that's why i don't give her any slack
