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.

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

Amphetamines were big back in the 40's and 50's too.. the super skinny housewife who polished the silverware and baked all day... Adderrall is nothing new. It and Ritalin have been known for decades as a 'clean' speed.. good way to focus, get stuff done.. and lose weight. More people are just getting legit scripts for it these days. Personally I don't see it as any worse than any other prescription.. I do however think doctors need to be aware of those abusing (any prescription) and treat it accordingly. People will drink tons of cough syrup, Nyquil or take way too much over the counter pain killers as well.

Yet another doctor who should lose his license! I am so sick of this. I work in the addiction field and any doctor who is prescribing Adderall to an addict should lose his license. There are other drugs and if the addict tries them all and says the only thing that works is the addicting one then send them to rehab or refer them out! Any doctor who prescribes an addicting drug to an addict should lose their license. How many people must die before we hold all doctors accountable!

As a person with adult ADD, I have taken Adderall. If you truly have ADD, it doesn’t wire you – in fact the opposite, it calms you down and allows you to focus. Those who don’t have ADD and take it experience a high from it. It interferes with sleep, so I am having a problem with her being so sound asleep she couldn’t be roused. Also, who gives a known addict a drug to help her make jewelry? When is jewelry making worth risking sobriety? Lastly, who pays for jewelry that is spray-painted? Sounds like an elementary school “Christmas present for Mom” project. None of my jewelry has been spray-painted.

I cannot believe that at the interview on TMZ when this was discussed that they pretended not to know what adderall is, and its prescription amphetamine. Its when its made by man its called methamphetamine. Go figure. Cracking out legally.
