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.

Most doctors tell people to cut sugar and carbs before prescribing anything against ADHD! Maybe she should try that first! She's not a 5-year old, time to grow up!

LL wants to leave? Should have spent those FORTYFIVE DAYS finding a rehab that would have catered to you better!
Just approved to stay there, now if she leaves will the Judge uphold this order or does LL skate?

I heard that the Betty Ford Clinic doesn't even have a daily Happy Hour for their patients!

What kind of low-class rehab facility is this?!?!?

by god if she wants to leave and go to another one.then the prosecution and judge will let her.she has dictated every thing else against the plea bargain as to not showing up at the right place and not on time.

What a crybaby. Just lock her up in jail. Then she definitely won't get her Adderall. Grow up already Lindsay. You've had a million chances. Clean up your act.

1) Lindsay will do whatever she wants.
2) The wimpy judge will go along with it.
3) We now return to your regularly scheduled program.

This girl is an addict. If she really had ADD she would be very welcoming to alternative methods. But since she is addicted to it she won't let it go.

Whoever wrote her prescription in the first place ought to lose their license to practice medicine. Who prescribes amphetamines to a known drug addict?

wow so surprised! lol I was actually going to university and a few of the women I knew there popped Adderal to study as well as for weight loss they never slept. It's common and if this story is for real then that clinic is doing the right thing for her and she should not be allowed to leave. Enough special treatment for her. Make her stay there as planned and let them get her sober. Maybe she will then understand what a colossal joke she has become.

If Lindsay goes to jail, she will lose her cigarettes. My guess she'll also lose the Adderal, based on the new evaluation. Wonder which would affect her more?

If she walks out of Betty Ford the judge will likely toss her into jail.

Why can't she just TRY the new meds and see how they work ?....she's there for 90 days anyways. I'm sure I've heard this before with Lindsay....refusing to get off Adderall.
