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.

Lindsay is a junkie and I'm glad Betty Ford doctors aren't going to let her continue to use this drug which is so abused. It is an upper (speed) and is abused big time. I do think Lindsay is like Brooke Mueller. Both addicts without the ability to recognize it.
Both will either kill themselves or land in prison.
Actually prison might stop them like it did Robert Downey Jr.

For anyone who knows nothing about 12 Step groups (and obviously there are many of you) they only work for you if you ADMIT you have a problem and WANT help. I guess that doesn't include Lindsay. You can lead a horse (or in her case an ass) but you can't make them drink it (unless it's booze)

Ohoh oh Lilo is not in there for fun this is a sentence imposed by the courts. To bad! The courts could give the alternative of a full jail term with no adderall. When under court ordered life one can not pick and choose. :)

Linds doesn't think she can live with no buzz everyday. She's got to have something, anything to help her survive in her mind, if she could conquer that addiction she could heal but she may be too spoiled. Sad.

whoever is prescribing her adderall should not have a license, clearly. shes got a whole host of problems, none of which she needs addictive pain killers for to "get high".. why not just prescribe her hydrocodone while your at it.

She should send a message to the prosecutor and judge that this is TOTALLY unacceptable

Inconceivable? Where have THEY been? Of COURSE this little twit will get her way! She ALWAYS does, and there lies the problem. She will be somewhere that she can get her Adderall in a flash!

Shes an addict and addicted to pills...so in other words, shes a drug addict. Im sure she uses it for the exact reason the doctors stated, they aren't stupid. I hope she goes to jail because there they will squash all her pills and even cigarettes. Dumb bitch.

Lindsay no one is forcing you to stay in Betty Ford, You can walk out at anytime and refill your Adderall Prescription.

I think the authorities should audit the records of the DR who prescribed the Adderall.
Too many star-struck Drs out there mis-prescribing pills and screwing people up.

I only wish it were true. Her father, for all his faults has pushed for that all along. I imagine they would have stopped it last time she was a patient there too. So I doubt it would cause her to leave. In fact unless she has been abusing Adderall by exceeding her prescribed dose, she will have become tolerant to a regular a dose and might experience very minor withdrawal over a few days - rather the rest of us suddenly quitting a coffee habit. I would laud Betty Ford if this were true.
