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.

Harv cant you get these two lawyers togather and get things worked out for them? Arnt you a lawyer yourself, or atleast at one time. Most lawyers practice law - you do know butt banging is against the law in every state right? , what are you and your partner doing at night? breaking the law?

Brit is awsome -

Ali is pretty cool also.

Fly glasses are the best.

those poor kids    

If she was actually prescribed Adderall (or Provigil or whatever), she should have informed the drug test people ahead of time. It's awful suspicious when her PR person is backpedaling and saying "oops, it's the Provigil" or "gee whiz, it the Albuterol" (which Albuterol is NOT an amphetamine, it's a beta II agonist, works entirely different), now "Oh gosh, it's the Adderall". Face it, she's a train wreck, a female Elvis waiting to expire in her damn car instead of on the toilet.

If she was really taking this Adderall like she's suppose to, wouldn't it have shown up on past drug tests, too??? Also, why is she perscriped SO many different drugs? They should be going after her doctor, too. Her drugs don't make sense.....if you have Asthma, why would you continue smoking??? I doubt the narcolepsy is real either. What a mess!!!!

OK, not for nothin', but why didn't her people simply give the drug testers a list of meds likely to appear in a tox scan at the beginning? Were they afraid that the news that Brit takes Adderall would ruin her reputation?

She should just go away. Forever. Maybe here lack of driving skills will help her on her way...hopefully alone.

If Britney blames her mother for her problems, imagine who Britney's kids are going to blame for their problems when they grow up.

number 21 Straterra is Not a stimulant.......Aderol is. There is no way you could test positve for stimulants if you take straterra

No wonder the child woman can't sit still for more than 5 minutes. Adderall is so misused and over prescribed as are many of the ADD drugs. It's really sad to see so many people of the younger generation hooked on these drugs. Admittedly, some may need it, but I seriously think it is over used and over prescribed by doctors and/or parents. When I was a child in 1914, we certainly didn't have drugs like that! Back then all we had was locoweed, stardust (opiates) and Cocaine. Come to think of it, there used to be Cocaine in the Coca-Cola we drank in those days and morphine and heroin in the patent medicines we used. Hmmm, maybe things haven't changed so much after all................

I'm with you Hora, my kids are my life. I try to be as safe as possible because I really worry that something could happen. This girl got her lips done on the day they took her kids away. I would have been home crying. A NORMAL mother would be doing everything right to get those kids back. I am not sure if she is crazy or on drugs, but one thing is for certain, she is not fit to be a mother.
