Lindsay Lohan

Her Adderall Is

On Chopping Block

5/7/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506_lindsay_lohan_adderal_betty_ford_articleLindsay Lohan is NOT drug free at The Betty Ford Center ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the rehab queen tell TMZ ... Betty Ford is allowing her to take the powerful drug, Adderall. The reason -- she has an Rx and says she's been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Lindsay has made it clear over the last month -- she would only go to rehab if she's allowed to take the med.  BUT ... sources tell us doctors at Betty Ford are currently evaluating Lindsay's diagnosis and the efficacy of the drug.  If doctors disbelieve her diagnosis or the usefulness of Adderall, they will cut her off.

Adderall is commonly misused by lots of people -- especially actresses -- who take the drug to suppress their appetite.

The good news for Lindsay -- at least she can smoke freely at B.F..

I bet you 100% this is why she wouldn't go to Seafield. They probably told her ahead of time she couldn't bring any type of addictive substances and if she did they would wean her off of them. The whole smoking thing was a "smoke screen", if you will. Lindsay is HIGHLY addicted to Adderall. In fact, I believe when she was at one of her many rehabs or UCLA she was actually diagnosed as NOT having ADHD. Also, Betty Ford has seen Lilo before. They know she is clearly an addict and what her drug of choice is--coke, crack, and Adderall.

According to a TMZ report when she was in UCLA:

And, we're told Lindsay was misdiagnosed in the past with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) -- which is why she started taking Adderall. The UCLA docs say LiLo does not have ADHD.

I don't believe for a minute she's physically addicted to Adderall. She does way too many other things to have a physical addiction to any one drug.

She takes Adderall because she wants to, and there may be somewhat of a psychological addiction. But no 90-day rehab will get her off Adderall. As soon as her required rehab is over, she'll go right back to taking Adderall, and anything else, because she wants to take it. Everyone knows she does anything she wants, regardless of consequences.

If Adderall was the only thing she was taking, then yes, she'd be physically addicted to it.

And let's not forget that UCLA doctors determined that she DOES NOT have ADHD.

I can understand needing Adderall to function if you work an actual job, or are a student, but what the hell does she need it to concentrate on? She barely works, and doesn't do anything but chain-smoke all day... she is clearly addicted to it and desperately clutching to it. I hope the doctors see through her BS - they are supposed to catch that sort of thing. She prob had some quack doctor misdiagnose her years ago - It's easy to lie and get a script for Adderall - you just say you cant concentrate or pay attention and its making your life unmanageable, etc., and they will write you a script. I did it in college (not proud of it) but I totally embellished to get it, not for recreational purposes but to help me focus on my school work.

This is the one drug that started it all out. It's basically meth. Lohan has been snorting it for so long that she will go into withdrawals without it and the withdrawals mimick ADD ironically. But in 3 weeks she will be out of withdrawals and won't need the drug. So I am glad they are going to evaluate it - but really they should have started weaning her off it a long time ago. I posted this article before - it's about a woman who was hooked on adderall - you'll see Lohan all over that article.

Lohan needs to get off this drug right away. It's always been her downfall (other than the fact that she's an entitled a$$hole who doesn't give a sh!t about anyone else but her delusional, lying, criminal self).

So she gets to maintain two addictions while she's there. Some rehab.

Nicole has been treated for burns after attempting to climb a fence that had a bug zapper, on the grounds of the Betty Ford Center. She reports, however, that it seems safer than cutting.

Why are we still reading about this irrelevent waste of air space? What has she contributed to the world in the last five years or so?

What you forgot to mention is that Adderall has almost the same chemical composition as cocaine, it's just released more slowly. Of course she wants to take it. It gives her a high. She's in rehab, now is the time to come off that med...

They ought to put that hunk of dead meat between her shoulders on the chopping block.

I'm curious as to who these 'sources' are. I'm guessing Lindsay gave the OK for her friend or her mom to sell this story to TMZ? I thought the judge said there was to be no public reports of her progress at rehab? Oh wait ... the judge said a lot of sh1t he didn't mean ...

Lohan never had ADHD just used that as an excuse for Adderall. This is nothing new.


Last week I saw a program about a guy called doc hollywood and he was a shrink or something but he was selling scripts for $150 per script. His biggest seller was Adderall. This guy made a friggin ton of money.


He finially got caught he said he was perscribing Adderall like 10 times more than any other physician. He also admitted he was also doing the drugs. Very good show by the way.
