Lindsay Lohan -- Frequent Doc Shopper

7/11/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan's dangerous combination of prescription drugs are obtained through “doctor shopping” across the country.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she would go to six different doctors for prescriptions. One source says, "When one doctor says no to refilling a prescription, she will go to the next. It’s a whole process to get what she needed.”

We're told Lindsay has doctors both in Los Angeles and New York -- even one of her past rehab facilities still prescribes her meds.

As we first reported, Lindsay has prescriptions for: Zoloft (antidepressant), Trazodone (antidepressant), Adderall (stimulant to control ADHD), Nexium (acid reflux) and the extremely powerful painkiller Dilaudid.

We're told Lindsay “would get a large supply every time” she visited a doctor.

To Katie of #163... Have you ever read a PDR? I only ask because your comment to TMZ about their poor reporting is not an educated answer. Trazadone, in fact, is considered an "SSRI", which is, in fact, an anti-depressant. Why don't you do your homework before ragging on TMZ and making an a** out of yourself? Just curious...

The only drug that raises concern is the prescription for Dilaudid. The antidepressants are just seritonin and noraepenephrine (sp?) reuptake inhibitors, and are not typically addictive nor can you get high by taking them.

I'm on much more powerful and addictive drugs than her for a slight anxiety and tic disorder (similar to tourettes)and i still have my s**t together. the problem isn't anitdepressants is the DEPRESSION. she needs therapy to learn to deal with life... no amount of drugs will fix a person who doesn't have coping skills. In my opinion she needs to stay on antidepressants while going to therapy, then lower the dose as she gains confidance in her abilities to suceed on her own.

How the hell is this train wreck on dilaudid. It is the highest form of morphine based painkiller out there. It is usually only given to the dying in extreme pain! Ridiculous!

TMZ should be a little more responsible on this one. I'm a fan of the show and the site but a little discretion would be nice. The Nexium, Zoloft, and Trazadone are all medications without the possibility of dependence. The only thing I see on there that can cause dependence is the Dilaudid and Adderall.
If they want to make a stink about those than that is one thing....but it's being made out to be more of an issue than it is. I'm not saying the girl doesn't have a drug problem....clearly she has at least an alcohol (which is a drug) problem. But don't act like valid medications used to treat depression (which may help her abstain from drugs) are part of the problem. The zoloft will help with certain types of depression....the trazadone is an antidepressant but most people use it as a sleeping pill that won't cause dependence.
