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.

Lets back up a bit, shall we?

1). Why was she taken to the hospital after she woke up at home?
2). Why did she not wash her FILTHY DIRTY hands while at the hospital if she wasn't on crack?
3). Which doctor living under a rock gave her a script for adderall?
4). For pity's sake - at what point will those boys be taken from them and adopted into a proper, drug- free household!

Why does DFACS come in and take those children away from her. If she was poor and not the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, the kids would have already been taken away? Poor kids!

Adderall is Hollywood's dirty little diet secret. Paris, Nicole Richey, ect., they are all on Adderall because it cuts the appetite. They just tell a doctor they have Attention Deficit Disorder and bingo, they get their Adderall.

As someone who used to abuse the sh*t out of Adderall it is so very dangerous and addictive. I have to wonder what doctor is prescribing an addict an addictive narcotic especially when there are non-narcotic medications out there for adults with ADD. She needs serious help! Anyone see her on Paris Hilton's lame reality show on WE? Brooke was so weird

Maybe it WAS Adderral ... maybe it was cocaine. It really doesn't matter, because she was abusing it, even if it was prescribed to her.
