I Was Abusing Adderall

Brooke Mueller is coming clean to her closest friends ... admitting she WAS abusing prescription medication before she was rushed to the hospital last week ... TMZ has learned. 

Mueller has been telling her friends ... she has a valid prescription for Adderall to treat her attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ... but admits she "fell off the wagon" last week and took way more than her prescribed dosage.

We broke the story ... Mueller's assistant found Brooke passed out cold on Friday morning and called 911, fearing Brooke had overdosed ... which was totally plausible considering Brooke's well-documented struggle with substance abuse.

Hours after Brooke was released from the hospital, she told TMZ she hadn't been abusing "illegal drugs" (including cocaine) ... but now, we're told she's finally owning up to the truth.

According to reports, Adderall is one of the most addictive and abused prescription drugs in America -- mainly because of its cocaine-like effects.

Our sources tell us, Brooke -- who's now in the jewelry business -- took the pills because she was desperate to meet a deadline for a jewelry order ... and didn't think she could afford to waste time sleeping.

We reached out to Mueller -- but she had no comment.

We could be in the home stretch on this one. Sounds like it's time to call Brooke with a big order. Oh Brookie, I'll need that sent by 3:00PM today via Fed Ex overnight or please cancel the order. Also I'll need some custom engraving done on 10 of the pieces. Your Adderal is in the middle drawer of the desk in the back if you need it......

It's people like this that give Adderall a bad reputation. Adderall is helpful for those with ADHD and can help them in ways other methods can't. But because of idiots like this people want it taken off the market. That isn't the solution. There are many medications out there that have side effects and are considered controlled but ADHD medicine seems to get the most negative attention.

HAHAHA    

You cant "abuse "adderal". Its a non addictive ADD medication. However it does show up as meth on drug tests wich is why her publicist told her to say it was adderal im sure...

Funny how people will make any excuse. If you take a prescription med in greater volume than indicated on the label if becomes an illegal drug.

OH NO!    

The only way to get off drugs is to stop taking them ALL. Not just the ones you want to quit. Everything else is just a crutch.
