Lindsay Lohan

Cut Off from Adderall

I'm Quitting Betty Ford!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0510_lindsayIt's Lindsay Lohan's worst fear ... doctors at The Betty Ford Center have cut off her precious supply of Adderall -- and now, she's hell-bent on making her escape.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay's claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).​

We're told Betty Ford's doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug.  And, we're told, the doctors are well aware many people -- especially Hollywood types -- misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.

Here's the immediate problem ... Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.

And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.

If anyone here thinks Adderall is harmless - you absolutely, positively need to read this...

This is the saddest story - and it mirrors Lindsay Lohan's prescription to adderall abuse. The fact of the matter is Lohan was not diagnosed as ADHD as a child - she had focus enough to film the Parent Trap without it, she had focus enough to work in her late childhood without it. It was only after she moved to LA as a teen by herself that someone gave her adderall as a party drug and then she knew how to fake the symptoms of ADHD to get more and more prescriptions. She needed the adderall for one thing only (and it wasn't concentration) it was so she could party all night long, drink more, and then work the next day. She was and is a serious Adderall addict and it is the root of all her problems (except her being an a$$hole which she is no matter what). Adderall is killing her. Read the article and you'll see the tragic outcome that adderall abuse can readily give its addicts. (it's a different case than the other NY Times article I previously posted).


Lindsay Lohan should thank her lucky stars that BFC is taking her off that drug. It will possibly give her back her life.

All of you are jealous. Lindsay was in Mean Girls-she is famous and therefore she should be able to do anything she wants-when she wants to and how she wants to. Lindsay Lohan is a star and don't you forget it!!

SO WHAT! If she leaves rehab then she will go to jail for a few hours, get released due to overcrowding, get her probation extended, violate it and then the whole damn circus will start all over again. You can't teach a brain dead dog new tricks.

Better Ford center is 24/7 12-Step religious AA/NA cult "HIGHER POWER" nonsense...

Betty Ford Center MANDATES program clients to use Witchcraft & Sorcery practices to conjure-up a make-believe "HIGHER POWER" , pray to it to "CURE" them....but IT NEVER DOES!

Having a "HIGHER POWER" that "CURES YOU" is NOT ALLOWED!

Lohan never had ADHD. Adderall was the new cool Hollywood drug of choice.

Damnit Shawn. FIX THIS. It's what I don't pay you for.


Throw Lohans ass in a rubber room or throw her out. She's a waste of time and space.


Let her try and pull her bullshty in jail. It's her call.

Seriously?    

She is not saying she is using it for weight lose; TMZ just speculated that it widely abused in the industry as a weight loss drugg. SH is claiming its for her ADHD-which BS-in my tiny corner of the world that drug has been used and abused by college aged kids-tweezers-up all night-ERS.energy booster-and highly addictive. She needs to grow up and get over her entitlement issues. It's not medically necessary. Imagine: okay ill go to Betty ford- but I still need a gram of coke a day, or a flask, or a joint. This isn't ala cart drug treatment. She is in no way serious about getting clean-I know this is court ordered...train wreck. I'm actually surprised she is still alive.

Adderall won't buy you happiness, you are trying to fill a void. Your broken relationships, behavior, anger issues, drug use, etc all scream that you are over compensating because of some other underlying issue, like lack of love in your life (your own doing) and loneliness.
