Lindsay Lohan --

Victim of Bad Diagnosis

8/19/2010 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... the doctors who have evaluated Lindsay Lohan at UCLA have concluded she does not suffer from the drug or psychiatric problems that were previously diagnosed.

0819_lilo_EX_Getty_01
Sources familiar with Lindsay's treatment at UCLA tell TMZ ... there's a feeling among doctors that Judge Marsha Revel "overreacted" when she ordered Lindsay to stay at the facility for 90 days.

We're told Lindsay has been "weaned off" all of her meds -- Dilaudid, Ambien, Adderall, Zoloft, Trazodone and Nexium -- and has had no adverse reaction.  Likewise, she has had no withdrawal issues in the alcohol department.  Bottom line -- the docs don't think Lindsay is an addict.

And, we're told Lindsay was misdiagnosed in the past with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) -- which is why she started taking Adderall.  The UCLA docs say LiLo does not have ADHD.

And finally, as for having psychiatric problems -- again the doctors say it's just not the case.  Morningside Recovery -- the rehab facility Judge Revel initially chose for Lindsay -- determined she was bipolar, but the docs at UCLA say she is not.  Our sources say Lindsay suffers from a personality disorder, which is all too common in society and sometimes partly the result of difficulties when growing up in Hollywood.

Our sources say the doctors are recommending an early release from UCLA -- we're told they think the maximum amount of time she should spend there is 30 days -- followed by outpatient care.

Good to see that Lindsay finally got a proper diagnosis.

May even help her understand herself better and what is really going on. The 'personality disorder' and weird behavior is probably due more to her f'd up family than anything else.

Let's hope she gets her life together and gets her career back on-track.

Lindsay is just a 24 yr old with too much money and too much freedom and a victim of bad parents. I never thought she was a addicted to anything. Just being young and having fun. she is just diff cause she is in the public spotlight. No one would give any other 24 yr old this much greif for making a few bad choices. Good luck Lindsay! I think you have the potential to be an iconic actress and wish you all the best!!

Of course she doesn't have ADHD. She's got a fake diagnosis for ADHD and on Adderall for the same reasons all those stars are, to keep thin and have energy. She will be back on it in no time.

Spare me. I'm certain UCLA doctors wouldn't say she's fine.

There is nothing wrong with LiLo and there never was anything wrong with LiLo. LiLo likes to party, plain and simple. THAT'S IT!!! This also prove the MiLo was screaming about nothing and that LiLo was telling the truth about her lack of drug issues.

Everbody goes to the doc and gets a fake diagnosis of ADHD so they can get their speed. Lindsey went to the Hollywood quack for it. A real psychiatrist knew she was misdiagnosed. But she will get out and go find a doc and get back on it to stay thin and have all that energy for late-night partying.

People that do drugs all the time have addiction issues. You don't be to an addiction specialist to know this.

"Our sources say Lindsay suffers from a personality disorder, which is all too common in society and sometimes partly the result of difficulties when growing up in Hollywood."

Obsessive compulsive disorder.
