Medical Board

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.

0913_lohan_launch_EX_
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."

I don't understand why people are so judgemental of Lindsay Lohan. Just because you don't like her acting or her singing doesn't mean that you have to hate on her. She's not like Paris Hilton. She got caught twice nearly 4 years ago and hasn't fallen off of the wagon since. Grow up.

I took Trazodone once for sleep because my doctor insisted that it would help me sleep. I had a bout of insomnia for a short period of time. When I took it, I always hallucinated that there was a tall blonde man standing in the corner of my bedroom staring at me. It was creepy. I hate blonds.

Drugs are ridiculous.

To point out the obvious: Nobody on this forum, including Michael Wouldja Blowme, has any factual knowledge regarding what Lindsay has been prescribed, nor the reasons.

Not a Lindsay fan or hater, just saying it's ridiculous for all these comments from people who don't know anything about the situation except what they hear on the celeb sites.

I think Lindsay needs to be just as concerned about the PRESCRIPTION DRUGS that her DOCTORS give her as the street drugs she's used in the past. Hollywood is full of prescription drug addicts. Plenty of Hollywood people have been DYING because of all the pill popping they do there. Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Corey Haim, Anna Nicole Smith, etc.

It looks like Lindsay has been on "uppers and downers" like Elvis. The Adderall and the Red Bull are the "uppers" and the Dilaudid painkillers and Ambien sleeping pills are the "downers". That's a vicious cycle that's often difficult to break out of.

That child actor Corey Haim died at age 38 a few months ago probably because he was taking huge amounts of prescription drugs like Valium and painkillers for YEARS. Listen to what he said about Lindsay before he ended up dying of an enlarged heart caused by years of prescription drug abuse. He was STILL taking the prescription drugs in the days before he died.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRBc9ygbHJ4&feature=related

That child actress Dana Plato on "Diff'rent Strokes" was totally addicted to prescription drugs and she died several years ago. Then there's that actor Heath Ledger who played the Joker in the Batman movie. Presciption drugs killed him too. I think Lindsay knew him personally. These prescription drugs can kill you just as easily as too much cocaine at Hollywood party can.

Lindsay needs to seriously think long and hard before she goes "doctor shopping" for prescription drugs. A lot of the "Dr. Feelgood" doctors out there are no better than the gangbanger drug dealers in LA. They just want you to keep coming back for more appointments by getting you hooked. It's all about the $$$$$$$ of course. Those doctors want to be able to live a plush lifestyle and feed THEIR families by getting poor suckers addicted and dependent on them ... just like the street thugs who sell dope.

Any doctor who readily hands out recreational drugs to allegedly treat easily faked conditions is a drug dealer with a fancy office. Medical boards definitely need to investigate and enforce some serious ground rules, policing their own. A legitimate doctor can provide acceptable proof and monitoring and will welcome such regulations.

On what planet does Michael Lohan have the legal right to view his adult child's medical records without her consent, which I'm pretty sure she didn't give? It would seem to me that he would have access only to those medical records pertaining to Lindsay before she turned 18, which was a few years ago. Is this just another ploy by Michael and his attorney to gain publicity? Unfortunately for Lindsay, both her father and Lisa Bloom are publicity w h o r e s who'll do anything to be in the spotlight.

wtf is wrong with you harvey? you go from "lindsey is a drug addled trainwreck" to she's "poor little girl misunderstood and misdiagnosed" within days. the truth is she is a prescriptioon pill addict popping adderall to stay thin and get high in weight conscious hollywood. if you look at her original drug tests when she was first popped for dui back in 2007-they are negative for adderall. she started taking it only to stay thin and high legally. truth be told-if this so called investigation is actually on the up and up, it will reveal that our little starlet is a doctor shopper in order to get extra doses of adderall- if convicted she will get PRISON time. harvey, someone has told you to muzzle your comments because I can't believe even you can be that stupid to believe this misdiagnosis crap. Why don't you do you own investigation on the adderall usage among young hollywood starlets and wanna-be's in hollywood-make yourself usefull for once and get your head out of your own ass.

Truly, Lindsay is still in the crib, and the problem is that
there is a lingering stench near the bath faciility which might be enviornmentally dangerous with regards to bio and radon or radium contamination. Lindsay's sister was used a a proxy as an
antidote/substitute to relieved of prison time!
My feelings arre that her throat and or vocal chords were tampered with similar to others on probation agreeing to spleenectomies for what I feel are unethical plea bargaining agreements.

The medical board can investigate anyone, and will have access to records. They are ABOVE physicians, and physicians are licensed and regulated by them. They get their license from them and they lose their license from them.

Lindsay is an actress and can fake being ADHD, by which the doctor's will continue to prescribe medicine to treat. It's an easily faked diagnosis.

All anyone wants from Lindsay is for her to take responsibility for her actions, instead of blaming everyone else.

Michael Lohan MD ???

Maybe Lindsay presented different symptoms and had different issues at different times which required different medical treatment protocals

Let the Medical Board investigate and stop the
"RUSH TO JUDGEMENT BY NON-MEDICAL EXPERTS" REDICULOUS

Nicole     

She was only taking the Dilaudid for the 2-3 weeks immediately after the SCRAM was fitted.
Apparently she was put on several prescriptions at the Cirque Lodge including the Trazodone and Adderall and she had been taking the Ambien since at least 07.
At least a month of her stay there was court ordered after it became a part of her plea deal so they obviously thought she needed the medication.
Obviously she shouldn't have been taking alcohol with these and may have been exceeding the prescribed dose but her reasons for being prescribed them appear to be legitimate.

Nicole and Susan, everybody!

They should just change their names to "Linnocent Butt Sniffer #1 and #2".

Whoops, can't forget Delmar Enabler. That's #3 right there.

I do not understand. Isn't she legally an adult? Whatever happened to Dr. patient confidentially?

If the story is true, I wonder if Michael is constantly meddling in her life so she will eventually pay him off to go away? Or, maybe he's looking for a pay off from the Drs.? She may want to issue a cease and desist order along with a restraining order against him. I'm not a lawyer but it sure seems like she may need some kind of protection from him.
