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.

If I use any illegal drugs while on Ritalin, they'll stop the prescription. If I had been drinking alcohol less than three months prior to starting medication for ADHD, there would be not prescription either.

They are super strict with the stuff, and someone rumored to be using drugs, would a) have to come in to be tested often, or b) atleast be on Strattera. If a person have a history of drug or alcohol abuse, no other medication than Strattera would be allowed.

She wouldn't get the meds without being on anti-depressants if she (so clearly) needs it. The docs would notice in most cases.

I thought she didn't have asthma..?

jess, ohio    

Yeah, crystal meth is an amphetamine too.... And much more likely to cause all of the erratic behavior we've seen her portraying lately. Denial's a bitch, huh Brit?!?!
