Investigates Lindsay Lohan's Doctors

9/13/2010 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... the Medical Board of California is investigating doctors who prescribed a variety of medications to Lindsay Lohan.

TMZ obtained these photos of investigators for the Medical Board at the law offices of Michael Lohan's lawyer, Lisa Bloom. The photos, which were taken on Sept. 2, show Michael, Bloom and investigators.

Bloom sent a letter to the California Attorney General back in July, asking for an investigation into "the unscrupulous doctors [who] overprescribe medications ..."

We're told the A.G. referred the matter to the Medical Board, which launched an investigation.

As TMZ first reported, prior to entering UCLA, Lindsay had various prescriptions, including Dilaudid, Adderall, Nexium, Zoloft, Trazodone and Ambien.

As we've told you ... UCLA determined Lindsay had been misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and prescribed meds she should not have taken.

Bloom confirms with TMZ, "The Medical Board is investigating and Michael and I are cooperating with them."

And this will go nowhere, just like it did with MJ, Corey, Britney, Heath, etc...

The only ones they ever went after was Anna Nicole's docs, but that was because there was that weird relationship going on with them outside of doctor/patient stuff.

What world do you live in? In the regular world, you don't ask for drugs. You go to the doctor with a problem and he determines whether you even need treatment, with medication or without. Period. If anyone is "asking" for drugs and the doctor gives them, they should ABSOLUTELY be investigated.

Dilaudid is a hugely powerful narcotic that is often used for cancer pain. I am a registered nurse and I have great confusion as to why someone would prescribe it for dental work. I also don't know how she could take it and still walk around.

Disturbed in #6 - I couldn't agree with you more.

Please please please Nicole Enabler and Delmar Enabler, tell all of us mere mortals and peons what the real inside scoop on this story is and how Lindsay is 100% innocent and simply misunderstood here. I'm on the edge of my toilet waiting to hear from you two beef cookies!

Uhh #8 she is a drug addict AND an immature idiot.

Adderall is a drug that when crushed and snorted gives the user some of the same effects of cocaine. It's the poor mans coke. She was addicted to real cocaine, when she knew she had to take drug test (probably even for projects) she was like oh hey ima get adderall..Which worked. Sending someone to jail when they have drug problems but still being allowed to take them once they get inside is a WASTE of tax payers money. She was allowed to take dilaudid which I believe was a bit much, if it were hydrocodone then yea no harm no foul..but then again she could of had complications from the mouth surgery (which was completely PLANNED just so she could use drugs while being in jail) or she may lie and say she has a low tolerance for pain..Some people hurt a whole lot worse than others for the same types of problems.

I think doctors constantly being investigated because stars are a bunch of drug addicted retards (the same retards we make rich and famous mind you). Its almost impossible to diagnose if someone has ADD..All you have to do is give the doctor -some- of the symptoms you have or lie and say you do have and they will give it to you..since they cannot actually know if you have ADD. So scoring Adderall to be used in place of coke would be pretty easy.

This bimbo is going to end up killing someone..When she was getting out I said to myself "This means she'll probably get her license back..she'll get coked/liquored up and kill someone this time" and sure enough..within what a week of getting her license back she runs a red light and clips a stroller..Well I hope when she kills someone..this time she doesn't get celebrity justice..i hope they throw her away for a very long time.

==========================

It's because Lilo's a junkie, just like MJ, ANS and all the rest of them. They get these doctors on their payroll and they get whatever they want out of them. It isn't until the junkie celeb winds up dead or half out of their mind that anybody says anything so somebody else can be blamed for the junkie's actions.

Let's see...hmmmm...how much money did Michael Lohan get for this photo op where he pretends he doesn't know he's being photographed...

How much did he get for this so-called 'exclusive'

I guess Michael Lohan continues to sell out his daughter. What a real loser.

MICHAEL LOHAN - YOU ARE A REALLLLLL LOSER!

How can they be investigating Lindsay's prescription drug abuse as they claim without her permission? What about client/doctor privacy?? Doesn't she have to give them permission to do this? If I was Lindsay I'd tell Michael and company to back off before they were slapped with a lawsuit! Him and his lawyers have no place in her business.

I think some of you have not fully read this story. It said Lindsay was MISDIAGNOSED hence she was prescribed drugs she didn't need!. Anyway, this poor excuse for a father is not doing this for Lindsay, he's doing it for publicity! There is nothing anyone can do because Lindsay is moving on and getting better day by day. Her father wants to remain in the public eye and this is his only means.

Lindsay is 24 years of age, where are the laws which prevent her medical record being discussed by a father she no longer recognises and an ambulance chaser lawyer such as Lisa Bloom?
