Brooke Mueller

I Was Abusing Adderall

During Jewelry Bender

EXCLUSIVE

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.

She was "desperate to meet a jewerly deadline and didn't want to waste time sleeping". That 's a good one. This chick has never worked a day in her life. Funny how she does not want to "waste time sleeping" yet she has chosen to flush her life down the toliet and abuse drugs. Who in the hellz goes to rehab FIFTEEN times anyway?

During my college years I used to stay up all night cramming and never ONCE did my roomate have to call 911 because I was unresponsive the next morning. . This chick has a full time live in nanny, household help and she STILL can't make a mickey mouse jewerly deadline? How much so called "work" does she do for this line anyway? I'm sure she puts her name on it and pays somebody else to do her dirty work for her. She operates on about a 14 year old level.

This loser has been afforded every opportunity in life and has chosen to squander it all for the sake of getting high.

Hunnie..if you want to die then do it already. Sad to say that those poor little boys will be better off with a wacked out druggie for a "mother".

Hey, Brooke...you really don't have to confess to the world that you had a slip. That is for your family, your NA friends and your sponsor. I don't need to know. I'm glad you are out of the hospital and back on the road to recovery. God Bless.

This is what happens when two good-for-nothing druggies have the financial resources to get invitro. They end up with twins that neither one of them gives a rats azz about.

Abuse drugs when you're single. When you have children, it ceases to be about you anymore (or should).

If she won't get it together for her children's sake, the kids should be taken away from her.

Charlie will rush to Brooke's side all concerned about her well being. They will have some hot booze and drug fueled sex. They will realize that "hey...we are two peas in a pod, we belong together...at least for the sake of the kids. Let's give it a shot". They will get back together just in time for an epic holiday bender and for Sheen to hold a knife to her throat on Christmas Eve again.

What doctor in their right mind would prescribe
Adderall to an known addict ????????

This does NOT excuse her taking an overdose, winding up passed out, while her children are
around !

Stop the denial Brooke, stop the excuses,
NO ONE believes a word you say

Doesnt she have custody of her kids? California please help them!!! It seems like the state of California is slacking when it comes to child custody, kids in dangerous homes with irresponsible parents, people getting away with crimes and little to no punishment, etc. Get it together folks.

There's a problem here    

I blew my knee out running. Had arthroscopic surgery. It hurt like hell. I had a script for pain pills. I guess in BrookeWorld since it was prescribed if I had taken 25 of them at once that would have been okay because, after all they were prescribed.

Is there any substance she doesn't abuse? You know the kids are screwed when Charlie Sheen is the more stable parent.
