Lindsay Lohan Just Says No ... To Some Drugs

7/13/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A source extremely close to Lindsay Lohan tells TMZ the actress has cut herself off from several prescription meds -- including the powerful painkiller Dilaudid -- even though she's legally allowed to take them.

As we first reported ... court documents show that Lindsay is allowed to take 5 different medications while on probation because she has valid prescriptions for the drugs Zoloft (antidepressant), Trazodone (antidepressant), Adderall (stimulant to control ADHD), Nexium (acid reflux) and Dilaudid.

But a source close to Lindsay tells TMZ she only takes two of those -- Adderall and Nexium. We're told she doesn't even take the Nexium every day, but that she has taken the Adderall for years because she was diagnosed with ADD.

As for the Dilaudid -- we're told LiLo was issued a prescription when she had oral surgery back in June, but she hasn't taken the painkiller in several weeks.

IT MAKES ME LAUGH HOW THE WHOLE LOHAN CAMP TRIES TO SWAY THE PUBLICS PERCEPTION....BUT I KNOW SOMETHING MOST DON'T....LINDSAY IS A METH HEAD. NOT ONE PERSON HAS NOTICED THE PROGRESSION OF MS. LOHANS FACE OVER THE YEARS? AND WHILE SHE IS 'ALLOWED' TO TAKE HER PRESCRIBED ADDERAL, WHICH TOO IS STIMULANT THAT CARRIES ALOT OF THE SAME PROPERTIES AS CHRYSTAL METH, HENCE SHE PASSES HER DRUG TESTS. COME ON FOLKS...GET WITH IT. LINDSAY LOHAN STOP LYING TO THE PUBLIC AND YOURSELF.

@mamaCE A strong argument can be made that Lindsay did fulfill the probation requirements. She did not do is go to classes once a week per the judge and not the normal can't miss a class in 28 days state requirement. This is all this is about. She did the number of classes, she made up classes and didn't go once a week 7 out of 27 times. If this was reported fairly it would state, Lindsay completed her classes she made up but did not follow the once per week issued by the court. Saying she missed classes is misleading if it isn't reported that she made them up.

One of my favorite quotes seems appropriate in response to that ridiculously uneducated statement..."I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed!"

I can respect the fact that many people aren't familiar with ADD and its associated symptoms, because there are a lot of misconceptions and bad information out there. I do have a problem with the fact that so many think it's perfectly acceptable to denigrate anyone diagnosed as having ADD...because they think they CAN or because they are under the false impression they are somehow superior in intelligence. The statement above is as ignorant and uneducated as Tom Cruise declaring that postpartum depression can be cured with exercise.

I would recommend educating yourself on this "stupid. lazy." person's "disease" before you pass your, ironically, unintelligent judgments in the future. ;)

Methamphetamine and Adderal produce very different results in urinealysis testing. They are absolutely different and one can not mask the other.I doubt your assumption that she is a user of methamhetamine.

You think that you can deduct the type drug she is using by the look on her face? That is about as scientific as the absorbtion test the SCRAM uses.

Trazodone is not used for depression anymore, but for insomnia. A long time ago, when it first came out, Trazodone was used as an anti-depressant at bigger dosages, but the side effects were too intense (drowsyness) so we now use it at a smaller dosage for this perticular side effect to help patients sleep.

I sent TMZ a email a few weeks back and told them to look into those lollipops I see her with all the time. Some of them looked to be medical ones used to hold a pain killer.

I know because sadly I have to take them. I like most people on them hate them.

#12 is right. Adderall is pharmaceutical speed & can be extremely addictive and dangerous. Yes, #46, it's a legitimate treatment for real ADD/ADHD and doesn't feel like a happy pill when it's being used as prescribed for the actual condition. But I've personally known a number of speedfreaks who've easily convinced doctors they have ADD to get scrips for a consistently more pure & more potent amphetamine that's way cheaper than street tweak - and it's a major high when taken by someone who does not have ADD.

If Lindsay's been taking it daily "for years" she's been mixing it with the alcohol & cocaine that she tested positive for during her DUI arrests (and who knows how often beyond that), which is a recipe for disaster. Heath Ledger/John Belushi, anyone?

It's also disconcerting that a diagnosed mentally & emotionally unbalanced person (she wouldn't be prescribed 2 different anti-depressants without an official evaluation - I know, I'm on dual meds for it myself) has chosen to stop those meds while staying on the Nexium. Seriously, indigestion is a bigger concern to her than her mental health??

How can TMZ say that Lindsay was doctor shopping and going to multilple doctors in multiple states to get drugs, but that she isn't even taking them? The only two drugs that she can take, that would be worth taking for a drug addict, is the Adderall and the Dilaudid. Those are also the only drugs she would need to go to multiple doctors to obtain. And now TMZ is saying she isn't taking Dilaudid? Well, about 36 hours after she starts her jail sentence, the jail keepers will certainly know if she had really stopped taking Dilaudid.

Re #52 ohmeowzer...

I respectfully disagree. That´s a great picture. It gives you an idea of how spaced out Lilo is on meds --- and she has to be, if you believe the other comments here.

TMZ has such great pictures. I can't wait to see their photo of Lilo´s face when she meets her cellmate, Big Bertha With The Broom Handle.

Dana,

Totally true. Adderall is an amphetamine and it is popular with school kids for getting high. Doesn't seem to be doing much to help her impulse control and 'ADD,' so I wonder why she's really using it and what brilliant medical person is prescribing it for her.

Sick to my stomach,

Lindsay's writing her own headlines. She's got no one to blame but herself for the predicament she's in. It is actually enablers like you who buy into her victim bs and don't think she should be held accountable for her actions who will ultimately be responsible for putting her in her grave--not some celebrity news site. If you really care about Lindsay, it's time to open your eyes and realize this is a young woman in serious trouble--not just addiction, but personality disorders and mental health issues as well. She needs extreme help. If jail is the only place she will get it than that is a blessing in disguise. You would benefit from some basic education in addiction before you start pointing fingers all over the place except for where they belong.

Sources extremely close to Lindsey.
Hmmmmmmmmm..........
Wonder who that could be.
Oh silly Dina, trying to work the press again.
Dear, TMZ you can't say that Lindsey uses tons of different doctors to get her meds one day than say she "says no to drugs" the next.
